Another set of tremendous images you have for us Chris.

I'm wondering if this is a female with a brownish crown, the other two images they seem to have chestnut in the crown, which appears to make them male. Have I got it right, do you think?

I'm preparing the images for including in The Opus article - thanks so much for letting us see them lad. I saw your post come in while I was in hospital and can now start to think about some work!
