Nice Bokeh Chris!

Beautifully isolated subjects Chris. I would love to get some pictures of these birds

Thanks Jeff, I was on Dartmoor the other day and couldn't get anywhere near them but on Burgh Island which is quite bare of vegetation they just sat up on the odd twig and just looked at me, almost posing.

Age

Judging by the amount of buff tips on the black head feathers, still, and from the slightly shorter, duller outer greater-coverts, I suspect that this is a male born last year.
