So happy to have found this beautiful young lady this morning. Have been searching for the last 5 weeks to no avail. Even happier this is a young female so the parents raised a brood despite the terrible weather.

This is a full frame shot pretty mush straight out of the camera.

Thanks for taking a look, as always all comments, critiques and clicks very welcome.

David
