Nice shot Zed. Reminds me of the decorations on my chimney breast... but much more classy.

Great composition, I have been photographing birds on the wing today so I know how tricky it gets. I imagine you used a tripod, what sort of head does it have?

Hand held David. Luckily they went round a few times so I was able to practice before they lined themselves up.
