Good Morning All,

Happy St David's Day to all my Welsh epzer's btw !!

It is such a great place to visit and you have managed to bag a good one here, not easy to do despite the many birds around as I know....

Been to Gigrin Alan. A superb spectacle to see all those Kites. Could not get anything as good as this however. Stunning shot.

Nice and sharp Alan. I pretty much expect razor sharp bird images from you now. I think over the last 8 month you have raised your game with them.

Started to comment on this ages ago, Ithink the phone rang. I do like the detail on the feathers of the wings and tail, the feet look agressive and fierce.
