Very

... nicely posed, Chris. Did you pay it? ;-)

Tough

Hi John, it kept perching on the top of gorse but I just couldn't get that near, so this shot was taken from some distance and at the maximum end of my telephoto lens. That said it did pose for the shot quite nicely, unlike the Northern Wheatear that were there as well but you couldn't get within 50 yards of them, oh well. Regards Chris.

Good Picture, Chris.

What lens are you using?

Lens

Hi Simon, 150-500mm Sigma at full zoom and crop (but not too much crop so I retained resolution) I couldn't get near enough for an image without using cropping.

Hi Chris, you're getting some good results there. Congratulations.
