insects on my arrival only twenty or so feet from
a local birder who was watching through a scope.
to post as it hawked it's prey. The distance it was
sometimes some thirty or forty feet away, incrediable
I waited until the birder left and I was on my
own. I sat quietly and waited, it didn't seemed
to be bothered by my presence allowing within
thirty feet of it as it feed, giving me an opportunity
for a few shot's.
I was later joined by Jim Almond, the Shropshire
birder who also managed to get a few shot's.

The bird gaves us some superb views at times
passing over our heads and landing very close.
A joy to watch, it's was almost like watching
