How did they get that name then? lol. Kites are great I wish I had the chance myself. The Elan Valley will be there the next trip I'm sure, it's not going anywhere soon.

Beautiful image, Alan. Wonderful colour, detail and pose.
Great to meet you today at Gigrin. I also met up with Shaun who asked me if I was Alun from ephotozine. I replied 'yes' but I now have that feeling that you may have been the Alan he was thinking of Grin Having seen your wonderful portfolio I hope more people make the same mistake!
Regards
Alun

can only blame my age and short term memory or it could be I am not concentrating when I have viewed your gallery - I think I am so in awe of your images I overlooked the fact you have been to Gigrin already, just been for a refresher now, apologiesSmile

This is one of the best bird shots I've seen on the site for a while, and even more so as this is a bird that isn't seen as often as other breeds on the site. Top quality work Al. Well done mate.
