    What a sweetie!!! Great work to catch this one – they are so hard to shoot, aren’t they??

    I (literally) almost stumbled on a nesting pair in our local woodyard and managed to get some shots with my 400mm lens, as this kept me away just enough to let mum settle down a bit. I was so thrilled to see the babies …

    (Hope this link works – haven’t done it for a while…)
    They are such an unusual bird, with their silly nesting habits (a clutch had been run over by a car just a few weeks before). My pair hang around in the local area, sometimes nesting on a busy roundabout … stupid things!
