Good evening all,
Got lucky today as the job I was on got done in double quick time, so I made the most of a
very sunny afternoon here in Norfolk and went down to the hide.
Suberb light for most of the 2 hours I was there and plenty of activity.
I choose this image as I have not had what I call a half decent shot of a GSW before.
Many thanks for the kind comments etc on yesterdays Robin, its great to be able
to upload something again.
Colin

The white blob beneath the woody does take ones attention and darkening it slightly may help, having said this its still a great shot

Well worth the wait I would say, what a super capture of this gorgeous bird, I wouldn't mind seeing one, let alone having the chance to take its photo ... Carol
