CommentI noticed this bird concealed under a low bush on the bank of a local river. As I attempted to find an angle for a photograph it flew off and perched a few meters away with only the far bank of the river as a backdrop. It was a dull and overcast day and so I chose a fairly slow shutter speed for a hand held shot.
