Thanks Kev, I'm pleased to see Peregrines are doing so well. Avon/Bristol/Bath/West​on/Taunton, five sets in my area all have been successful with no loss of chicks yet.

Male Yellow Warbler.

They're small, quick, and evasive. They tend to perch on high branches. When closer to the ground they prefer dense shrubs. They're a good test of a camera's AF system and a photographer's patience. We'll try again tomorrow with the 1.4x.

Thanks, Mike, I've been following this particular owl for the past 3 months so I know where it's at. I believe it knows me well by now, as well. :-)
