i missed a musket the other afternoon came right past me 2ft off the floor, plenty of nest sites round here probably the easy way for me to get some.

I'm hoping I can capture a Kingfisher that nests local and also maybe get a Peregrine and Sparrowhawk that are also local.

 

Thats all depending on me getting to work this camera, it took me a day to realise I still had the lens cap on. Thats the last time I take advice off paulus. :laugh:
