The Eider ducklings are very appealing, and the photo is just right: very sharp with the background nicely out of focus. You have far more skill than I at capturing birds in flight: the guillemot is excellent. I like the shag too.

Reminds one of the story at Whitby a while ago, when a young shag was wandering around town and at one time came into a shop, where it was photographed. It gave one of the staff the opportunity of texting "We had a shag in the shop today"

Much appreciated Gareth. In hindsight I should have stopped down further. Should have had the feathers sharp from front to back. Especially for B&W
