Hi Martin

Some really classy shots there and I really like the reflection one on the water.

There really is a family story throughout the year watching these interesting birds without disturbing the roost... photographing isanother matter. Good examples Martin... the refelections are great if and when you get them. (weather's grim and not good for a while!)
