Very impressive frame-filling bird action! 4 & 7 are special for me, 4 for the unique pose and 7 for the bits of out-of-focus elements around the bird, giving a sense of its environment and depth.

Great shots, every time I look at No4 I imagine a brick-wall just out of shot.
Pint o' rough & a game o' darts anyone

Love no. 4 - "Yoo-hoo!" and that second razorbill fills the frame very nicely. But they're all wonderful.
