Or three if you have been looking at the gallery pics like I have in the past few minutes! Lovely to see them - that water looks rather high though!

Deb,

The water was higher than normal but had gone down several inches from the previous day when I first saw one of them. I went back specifically to see if I could get pictures and was amazed to see the birds standing off the rock that they're pictured on and I could still see the top of their legs. They clearly know their patch of river very well.

Oh wonderful Derek!! It's not often you get two of them together like that.

That's a cracking picture laddie - very well done.
