    Very nice that Elvis, as said the b/g works really well (y)

    I've been to a local site that used to have them but having been several times I can't find any though I guess it's relatively early days yet.

    Lovely shot!

    Spotted 7 on my walk last night, back with the camera this afternoon...not playing ball.

    Might have to pop up first thing in the morning to feed them
