Good Morning All,

Thanks for the terrific response to yesterday's upload, really appreciated.

Yesterday afternoon went down to the SV Natures Reserve for a few hours but it was very quiet down there and for 40 mins I didn't even see a bird. Also the light was not very good. I did get a view of a woodie for about 10 mins and managed to get a shot of him...thanks for looking.
Looks like its going to be a wet one here in Wales today.
