This one is just about to slough.
And with the Nikon P900 I can get a decent shot without disturbance, nice to walk away and leave this one sunning itself - it's important not to disturb them, particularly when they have recently emerged and are gearing up for the breeding season ahead.
2nd April: Another female today near Blackgang Chine - what a beauty! This was about as big as you normally see in the UK.

Also had a Red Kite nearby at St Catherine's Oratory, which drifted in off the sea.
