Thanks, Mike. Most of my landscapes seem to end up B&W now - hours of fun in Photoshop, which keeps me out of mischief!
I'm knee deep in these at the minute LOL
And quite a few Dunnocks at the feeding area too
and the numbers of Linnets are building too.

Very distant photos of a Peregrine Falcon taken today at 3pm, had to use the 2x Convertor to get the reach. It stayed for a few minutes then flew off.

It may have been far away but your big lens has captured it beautifully. Stunning bird.

Unlike her to be so coy. Is Mr Mally still with her?

Such a stunning bird the Male Bullfinch is.
I didn't expect this photo to be that good as it was taken handheld at 1/60's. It was more of a chance shot. The other dozen or so I deleted, thank goodness we have digital, when I think back to my old SLR Canon AE-1 I was carrying around in the late 80's in comparison to modern day DSLR's where some have GPS technology that will tell you where you took the photo.
