As its panto season, thought I would show you this one. I wanted to shout to this Dipper fledgling, " It's behind you" As the fledgling knew its parent was near but didnt know where, it opened its beak to be ready & waiting.

Great moment captured Jane.

On my screen it looks really noisy and some detail has been lost on the feathers. I noticed from the EXIF you had the ISO set at 1600, with a shutter speed of 800. If you had reduced the ISO to 800 you will still have got a workable shutter speed and seriously reduced the noise/detail loss. I am not an expert so if anyone else has better knowledge it would be great to share it.

Hi David, you are right. The birds were on the dark side of the river where the sun hardly shines onto. This is why the young hide on that side so they are harder to see.Which means the gulls & sparrowhawk wont spot them. So I had to up my iso as high as I possibly could go, my lens will only go as low as 5.6 so no choice there. It was moving as getting excited with its parent being near by, they also flap their wings when they are being fed. I hope this answers your query. Jenny
