This is the bird that always eludes me and with saying that it hurts me so much to give my UA for it dam dam dam Wink
Seriously its first class Dean and the backlighting really makes it stand out, and you even managed a glint in its eye, wereyou using flash.
Its superb
Tip for next time carry an empty bottle to pee into and you wont miss the shot

Hi Richard, many thanks for the UA mate Smile chuffed with that ! No there was no flash used, I never use flash mate ... The glint is probably the frost, froze to death sat waiting for the sod Wink
