Difficult to get the colour of these just right, when overcast colours more accurate but does not have the twinkly beauty of the birds in full sun and flying. But in sun they can look rather brown rather than gold on the photo. Incidentally the 'blurred' photo was taken at 1/200th sec so it was not a particularly slow shutterspeed but the birds were very jittery as peregrines had been zooming about all morning according to other birdwatchers there.
