And so at 07:57 when it rose this morning, and a short while later when it hit t'interweb, it had to be done. A small deviation from the working day (time off, of course) had to happen.
Some of the 280 on my life list have been really special. Some still draw my attention and I would travel to see them. Red-backed Shrike, Redstart (bit of a red theme here) and Green Woodpecker to name but three. BUT, I have never seen a bird as majestic, breath-taking, stunning, beautiful (need I go on?).
I arrived at 11:30 and left 40 ornithogasmic minutes later, with some superb views (but NOT through the camera!!!). To those who criticise their own photographic endeavours, I offer the following to the competition entitled, 'Tell me what that is again, please'!!!
