Wow, some sequence they are Dave.

Rare birds, usually not seen unless on a reserve or somewhere 'secret' (no answer reqd).

Thanks for posting.

We're lucky enough to have waters in Norfolk where they can be seen quite regularly. Not often at close enough range to get pics of that quality though. Well done, Dave :thumbs:

Amazing. Out of curiosity for someone who knows nothing about photography what kind of distance are you away from the bird?

Awesome shots yet again Dave. Is it time for a 'Dave Newman wildlife photos' sub- section of the forum yet?
