A Willow warbler Phylloscopus trochilus, putting on a display for a potential mate
Taken on Sunday in the great company of Nigel KiteleyGrin at my local reserve.

Five weeks since I last uploaded, but certain things have kept me away from the site.
I won't bore you with details, but many thanks to those who have PM'd me over the last few weeksTongue

A very belated thanks to James (jamesmoorephotography), for his generous award given to my previous upload, whenever that wasWink

Very nicely taken Adrian. Mike and I had a good wander round there last week, but nothing presented itself.

The lens is working nicely, thank you.

No such luck Brian, the Tomcat is back to bother us all and frighten all the birds away!Tongue An excellent shot of this beautiful summer visitor who looks as though he/she is about to take flight. No doubt he/she's spotted a Tomcat lurking in the bushes!WinkGrin
