Hi Lucy,
I've not managed to read your blog properly before as it kept fizzling out before I could.
Nice pics.
It won't let me post under my wordpress account, but it's from We're connected via Twitter; I'm guineapig66

Great series of shots; I love that you captured this moment.

Just came across your blog; I'll have to come back and check out more! Nice to "meet" you!

Oh, my goodness! What great photos. Thanks so much. I love birding, so this was a real treat.
