Great stuff Pete ..I had 7.... 3 years ago at my feeder for 2 days running ..the only time in 15 years at my house .. They seem to be common Walmer side but extremely rare in Summerstrand ...Pity I have no Wild Life lenses at the moment as my Sunbirds are thronging at our 2 bottles of Sugar water hung for them and on My Wild dagga Plants in full bloom at the moment ...Well just have to take Jane and my Border Collie's portraits :-0
