En ny art för mig så idag var jag väldigt nöjd. Jag vågade mig inte för nära då det var öppen mark. Taget med mitt 500mm objektiv på fri hand. Det var 2 st, troligen ett par.  :)
A new bird for me so I was quite happy today. I did not dare to try to get closer as it was open ground. Shot with 500mm lens, handhold. There were 2 of them. Probably a pair.  :)

  9. Pretty (and fat) little things aren't they! They must find plenty to eat.
