Aaaaaw!!! Three times I've taken a picture of one and each time the card went faulty before I could download it!!! And here's you getting them at your window!!

Life ain't fair, is it LOL

That's a fabulous picture you've taken of him lad - very well done.
 
Haha Delia, that sort of stuff usually happens to me, sorry to hear that!
I was actually lucky to have been there in September - for the whole of the summer the window had been clouded with a wash of wood ash to stop the kamikaze fledglings from trying to fly through it, so the bird would have appeared to be sitting in a thick Irish mist. My sister had just cleaned the window though... :)
