Jesscan and Jan, thank you. :D

I think that we are really privileged to have folk with such talent posting. I feel as though I am starting my day paging through a beautifully illustrated nature book. 8)

Yet more great pics from LP :clap: . It makes me feel like I am sitting in the hide instead of at work!

Jesscan 1 - love the Pied Kingfisher with its wings spread.
Jan - love the Black Crake. Always a welcome sight with their little dashing around movement and then surprising me when one appears on top of a bush!
