It's a lovely image Nige, but after looking for a while and at the Exif data I think it may be a terrific bit of processing too

@Doug: Time to come clean Doug - the bird was photographed at Newent against an awful grey sky - so I cut him and pasted him on to another sky. IT IS APRIL 1st after all ...............
