What a great show over those days O\/ So many different bird - and even two lifers! That's absolutely brilliant O/\

I had a good laugh at the photo of the headless reedling at your feet. Its foraging for food in that crack looks somehow funny. lol

And consider yourself lucky that the beaver didn't shred the wooden bridge =O:
