I can't remember ever seeing one of these in the Peaks, but there were a few flying around Saturday morning. I was in my car when I captured this one or otherwise I don't think I would have got so closeSmile

You've given me hope of capturing a great bird image with my Canon EOS 450D and 70-300 lens.
Sometimes when I see a really good image and look at the camera, I think I'll have to update
Brilliant Ryan.
