when you say 'wild' do you mean truly wild or wild but coming to feeders - ala Neil MacIntyre or such?

either way a great image and I am the last person to worry about baiting - just curious

Wild but visiting feeders, Phil as opposed to captive in an enclosure, such as The British Wildlife Centre, Lingfield, which is actually brilliant for those unable/unwilling to make the long journey to pockets of the country where these lovely creatures survive in the wild.

BWC is all well and good but you cannot get this quality of image there in my opinion - well deserving of it's votes, awards etc
