Two fabulous images, Tony ... superb work ... and, I'm happy you didn't have to climb-up, LOL ...
 
A lovely capture. Thank you for your comment on the yellowhammer. It was a wonderful day with a wonderful blue sky. Bird detail and the sky exposure, I reduced light and contrast, were equally important to me in post processing.
