Pair of Birds I think are Dunnocks.

Fascinating watching these two, it appears the male can't make his mind up. I was tempted to comment/narate but decided better not.
I still prefer still photography to video, is it just me?

These are top notch - the colouring, compositions and your ability to spot the right moments add up to a really enjoyable set

Well spotted, well taken.

The RSPB website here explains what seems to be going on in your set - and it's stranger than you might think.... And as the website says, "And it's all going on in your shrubbery..." .

Thank you for the comments chaps. I do recall the info in your link Steve from a TV program but had not remembered it was the Dunnock.
BTW, used the KP and DA* 300 f4. Checked the settings this morning and was shocked the ISO was 3200 and one shot at 2200, I have not taken shots this high before. I have a user mode set up for Birds with Back Button focusing. These were all 1/750th sec at f6.7 with half a stop underexposed. All SOOC just scaled down for the forum upload. I'm really impressed with the clarity of the images

Good stuff! There's not many would get the chance to come up with a sequence like this. Well spotted and well captured!
