Superb set, Len - lovely plumage detail/patterning/colours and fine eye - lead photo just gets my award but V3 is a close second - love the sense of movement in that one.

Cracking capture of a stunning bird Len, quite rare too. But itís the most photographed bird in the country at minute. I have seen hundreds of shots on Facebook. I was going to drive down to see it myself
