Love thy neighbour

Hi folks,

Beats me why they don't damage their wings, the way that they bash away at each other even in flight. These two were at it (bashing each other) for the thick end of 15 minutes yesterday.

Ha ha! It is bad enough when they bash each other when on the ground! Nice shots, Bill!

Disgraceful behaviour, Bill, show them a red card.
Great shots of the argument.

Brilliant set of action shots, Bill. They do flap ferociously, don't they?
