We were driving around South Downs today and came across this magnificent peacock.

Apart from being very loud, he looked extremely stern and pissed off. And it's not that I was too close to it or anything; I took these shots with my 100-400mm lens.

I guess I would be pissed off if I had to drag a ridiculously long tail behind me all the time.

And turning around, we saw Thomas The Tank Engine! (This photo is especially for my sister's kids ;-) Click on the photo to see a bigger version of it.

Then drove to Ditchling Beacon to see the sunset.

...but instead of a beautiful sunset, we saw this gorgeous little thing!

Juvenile kestrel, I believe.

The moon looked more impressive than the sun, really, but even though it wasn't a spectacular sunset, it was a lovely one nevertheless.
