I spotted this bird poking it's head out of the heather. It was hiding from the men out shooting the birds for game. Poor things. I just managed to get a shot through the open car window before it flew off. It's not the sharpest of images as it was taken hand held, no tripod, and I'm not that steady with the large lens on the camera.

What a great capture! I love how it's just peering out over the tops of the heather. Beautiful moorland shot.

Nice shot. It is such a great capture seeing it just popping up to look out.

You captured the moment very well, Carol. I like this cute bird looking out very careful.

Thanks for your comments too.
