Was there a reason for thinking they were young ones? Difficult to tell from the photo.

well I was going from my observations in the field rather than this poor picture - they were generally paler and given the time of year... maybe I have just jumped to this conclusion, suppose they could be 3 females?

Yes, you are probably right, but they are very similar at this time of year.

Yes, you're right Ian, I may have been a wee bit presumptuous; always good to be reined in a little!
