One to be proud of Richard
Not the commonest of birds any more and to nail one side on and in full song is some achievement

Seeing as I can't PM youSad here is the details of the lighting for the Ginger tom upload

Black bath sheet on settee
430 Speedlite on camera (tripod too) but set at 90 degrees to the left - flash bounced off a white reflector back towards the subject.
Piece of silver foil out of shot, to the right of subject to take out some of the RHS shadows

What a cracking good capture Richard. Perfectly timed and exposed. Roll on when we will see the birds perching on that glorious gorse again.
Deserves a medal mate.

Well captured Richard.
Good composition with clean BG.
Like the yellow of the gorse which adds to the image.
