Doffcocker lodge, Bolton, early June 2012 and the birds are
resting as they await the first chicks to hatch. A very hot, sunny
day and this bird takes a quick dip close to where I am siting. Slowly
I sneak down to his level and wait for him to take off once more.
I make no excuse for the tight, in your face framed shot for that
is just what I intended. They have such beautiful faces.
