Distant shot, cropped.
My computer is playing up a bit, I think a recent Windows 10 upgrade has caused a few problems - not sure if I'll end up off-line while it's being fixed.

Oh dear, yes, Windows 10 has given me some issues as well. Haven't had time to see about fixing them yet, and they happen unpredictably, so impossible to reproduce when I have a service person handy :S
Meanwhile ...
Lovely photo and bird
