New Arrival

By SteveMoulding    
On my way into work I noticed a flock of birds on the grass at our local airport of Shoreham. The next day only a few were around but I had my camera just incase. I knew what they would be and managed to grab a few shots albeit from a fair distance, so not the best but I was happy just to get them. Another box ticked so to speak.
Many thanks for all the comments and votes on my last upload 'In Yer Face' and especially to Lillian and Jekaro for their UA's which were very much appreciated.
Have a great weekend,

ps. I could have done with Richard's 800mm.
