My results from yesterdays birding trip, the bird's Id's are attached to the file name.
The Greater Spotted Eagle was at very far distance and therefore only a record shot only, we get excited seeing them here, they are a rare passage visitor when migrating.
C&C always welcome

This Saker Falcon is an escapee, probably worth a lot of money,

I Know many that are not so found of Montages, myself I quite like them.

Here's a couple of my attempts with the White Winged Tern I photographed yesterday.

When reviewing my edits, I realized that maybe some of the Tern shots I have used the bird may look too larger then life in the edits, whatever.

C&C always welcome

Nice shots John. The Roller is an interesting looking bird. I like the eagle shot, I would clone out the tower and make it a keeper.

Thanks Steve

The Roller is very dull, next season when breeding they become so colourful see added pictures

I have the Eagle covered a little better in previous encounters so this shot was not so important for me, other then the record.
But it's a bird I still need to get improved BIF shots

See added pictures
