a very active and elusive bird; dull, dull and duller light, the worst of course when it showed best late on after the chasing crowd had evaporated and AF failing in the low contrast dull, did I mention dull, conditions; it was also cold in a rather fresh southerly wind and dull; these are some of the better duff shots! the head on flight shot was one of my favourites! the bird actually looked very distinctive in flight with a somehow light and buoyant level flight but the head on pattern of pale throat, gorget across the upper breast and striking pale eye rings made even approach views instantly identifiable
