@George Cloake: As I state in the notes it was taken near Snowdon off the A498 which is North Wales in what used to be Caernarvonshire but is now Gwynneth

Beautiful shot!
I spotted two of these on the banks of Loch Lomond today, but they were hoping about under a car and I couldn't get a shot off :)

@payam: The birds get well fed by the visitors who use the car park and feed them little tit-bits.
