Nice one Daniel, you did well to get a picture in the poor weather.
Fair old species list too - hope you've dried out.

You did well to get a shot in those conditions this morning. Best birds often turn up in poor weather !

Well done dish, Dave's right good birds turn up in bad weather, all I could manage at Mount Tabor was 2 LBBG, 3 Common and 50 BHGs.
