Another bird pic! This one taken in June at Welney in Norfolk after conditions made hunting Swallowtail butterflies pointless that day.

This is one of the few good shots I got as this Male Reed Buntin sang its heart out in front of one of the hides as the reed it was perched on swayed wildly from side to side in the stong wind!

Bit of a bugger about the other reed in the foreground but the best shot of one of these I've ever managed by a mile Smile
