    Thanks Both,

    Stef,

    First time I have seen them, in the couple of years I have taken an interest in bird photography. I live right on the edge of woodlands and countryside so I do get a nice variety of wildlife in the garden.

    Seem very lucky so far this year with the new visitors.............looking at the photos again they do look darker after uploading on here and a bit on Flickr compared to my un-calibrated monitor. Will have a go brightening the a little.

    Perfect (y)

    Seems like you're off to a good start re the garden visitors.

    We get a good variety in our garden... nuthatch, woodpeckers, greenfinch and goldfinch are regulars. We get the odd Kestrel too as we're on the edge of some rural, privately owned fields to which we have access along with nesting KF about 15 mins walk through a farm.

    A hip injury has held me back in the last 3 yrs for hopping over stiles and ducking barbed wire but all looking a lot better for this year (y)

    Lovely birds, Simon. The edits look better to me too though I'm only viewing on the laptop, which isn't a great screen. I'd love to see these birds.

    @Jannyfox if you're in South Wales anytime you're more than welcome to call in to take photos, that also applies to anyone else on the forum.

    Thanks folks for the comments, it's appreciated.

    Flickr's Aviary software seemed okay for brightening the edits, saved going back into LR to re-do. Handy to know I suppose and maybe of use to others.
