Wonderful image, Steve!

I was thinking, could you give those here who are aspiring bird snappers a little background, the story behind the taking of this shot?

Where, what sort of terrain, from a hide(?), weather, how far from the car to carry the gear, etc., etc.? Research as to where the birds were?

Hope it's not too much of a pain, but I, for one, would find it very interesting.

Thanks,

Roger.
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Roger,
Actually this was an unplanned shot, I'd gone out to try and get some Sand Martin shots (with no success)and happened to spot this Stonechat along with its mate on some Gorse bushes. I approached them slowly and got with 10ft of the Male.

I was using my K5 with a DA*300mm lens. A lot of wildlife photographers will think 300mm is a bit short for birding but I like it because it is quite lightweight and in bright light can be used with a 1.7x converter to give 510mm.
