Sardinian Warbler

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, haven't been around for a while and no new shots of late due to a bereavement in the family which has required a lot of time to get sorted. Fran and I have done almost 2500 miles over the past few weeks going back and forth between Devon and the Midlands but things are beginning to settle down to a more normal life now. This is an earlier shot of a Sardinian Warbler taken in Cyprus but cleaned up and a filter applied to the sky just to brighten up what was a very grey sky (NIK software) A species very rarely seen in the UK.
Many thanks for the votes and comments on my Goldfinch 2 , I will do my best to catch up with you all over the next couple of days,
