Thanks for getting back to me Cliff and congrats on the photo in Birdguides weekly round-up - richly deserved. Couldn't make my mind up on which of your pics to use and in the end went with the top one. If you'd prefer I use the other let me know and I'll change it later in the month. Thanks again.
