"Werewolves of London"?!
Ah Ha BunnyDoom you are switched on mate and made the connection!
John he must have been caught in the rain, normally they are a bit grubby around the face from feeding and have a few leaves stuck on them too. That's a great tourist photo, what they expect them to look like.
I have quite a few different echy pics taken over the years Grant. They get a bit on their beak though there`s bugger all dirt on the others too.. they must be cleaner where I live.
This bloke has a bit of dry anthill on him in this other pic,with muddy feet.
Now that last one has attitude, he looks like he's going to take on anything on his patch.
I haven't any pictures of them but I see quite a few around and they all seem to be grubby. Maybe I catch them just after a meal forage.
My pics are taken when they are actually foraging,I reckon they have a self clean mechanism built in.
Lovely pic well done
