Why would you want the answer sent round on Police Constable! GrinWink. Lovely clear, detailed capture Ann. Popping out to Apes Wood later to see how the 'bells are doing.

I'm no use at identifying birds, Ann, but I see others are able to supply ID for you: fine capture of these two attractively plumaged geese.

I love the way that birds stand on one leg with such apparent ease, if only comes to mind, I can stagger standing still now and count it as a dance step.
