#1 He's serious, "Give Way"

A Kestrel holds us up for a few minutes.
This is #1 in this weekends Series of Birds.
You've seen some Cormorants and a 'roo, not it's Birds Birds Birds!!!
I am test driving my new 1D3 which is quite different handling from the 1Ds3 it's bigger brother.

Update on dad: He's perked up big time and is at home with mum. All the positive thoughts and prayers worked and he's "Trying harder" in his own words. Go dad!!

Let's hope you all enjoy this weekends efforts as they unfold across the week . . . . . . .

"Give Way" kicks it off.....

This is a funny one, Rob! Bird seems to mumble something like TaxiDriver's "Are you talking to me? Huh?" :-D

We were so happy he flew away and back and stared us down
