A 3,1/2 mile walk carrying a 500 lens etc along the snowy banks of the Iwell to Clifton CP in less than zero temperatures for a bird that I thought might be gone was not how I expected to spend Christmas day. Added to, that lying in the snow and getting soaked is not recommended for the morale. However the bird was there and I managed some shots and then I decided to just enjoy watching the bird till it flew off to the river at 12.10pm. The shots are full frame or near full frame.
