Can you tell what it is yet? Unfortunately I didn't manage a not bad pic of this fab wildlife!
Was almost dark in the garden, 1st shot was through glass, and as I carefully, silently (Ithought!) opened the door, he flew up to the tree at the bottom of the garden
You know they do it on purpose, right?!
Good views today of a Red Throated Diver and then it took off as it was disturbed by a fishing trawler. Reviewing the photos and realise that your shutter speed was only 1/320 is not the best feeling :(

Fortunately I did manage more shots of it swimming about and this flight shot came out OK considering the shutter speed. I will post some normal shots later.
Hmmmm, nice photo, but I can see where Bob's coming from as for bad pic.
Still a nice photo though, definitely showing action...

I've got some better photos of the red squirrel, which I've yet to post (I had forgotten in the excitement of the kingfisher and heron photos), though they are in the October 2019 Album in my Flickr Account.
The squirrel box, is one of many at Plas Newydd, Anglesey, North Wales. Whether it is unique to there, or a standard design, I've no idea, but it works, and the reds manage to get their food, and we manage to get some good piccies.
