Lovely set Lillian. He wasn't interested in fishing whilst we were there quietly watching. It wasn't bothered by people and their dogs walking past either. Do you have plans to go again??
Always quite easy to get Bob down there (he loves brekky afterwards in the cafe!!)

HAs to be V1, Lillian. The spread of the wings is beautifully captured and the darkish light has something special.
V2&3 appear slightly over-processed?
A magnificent bird. Lucky you to have the opportunity to view him like this.
