I tried to correct the spelling mistakes, but it didn't work, no idea why? Not that I didn't see them!

Great action M-L. I haven't been down there in a while.

Cheers, Owen.

Hi Peter, I'm so sorry, but I've been thinking about what you said, I don't get it. Can you please explain what you mean? What am I missing here?

sorry for my typo and lack of clarity

I should have typed 'ounce for ounce you have to like the Willie Wagtail'

the area is probably his home territory and the B-S K has dropped in

given the difference in weight and fighting equipment, eg talons, a sensible little bird would hide in the foliage but not a WW

by the way I should have said your usual high standard of pic

You've done it again M-L. This shows why sometimes just showing one photo doesn't portray the scene entirely. Great shots.

Regards

What a stunning series M-L.

 

I love the cockiness of the Willie Wagtail - they are such a brazen little bird. They take no prisoners!
