  1. Some wonderful photos- a nice mix of the common place & the rare. Though I rarely comment I do always look at your posts & enjoy the photos. Wishing you a Happy New Year & hope we all get our freedom back in a few months time. First time as an adult I've not been able to go overseas to watch wildlife.

  2. Thanks for commenting again and yes it will be nice to get some travel options open to us again next year. I might even get on a plane myself when the times right.
