    Nicely done Paul. Welcome to the Cafe!! :smile:
  4. Very nice shots!
    How big are these birds Paul?
  5. Thanks,

    They are about the same size as a black swan (but with a shorter neck obviously).

    According to my bird guide they are 75-100 cm long with a wingspan of around 150-190cm.

    Makes it a little easier when you don't have to get within 5metres of them to get a good shot! (little birds frustrate me!) :)
