Waltham Brooks and The Burgh

Thursday brought a trip  to Waltham Brooks in an attempt to photograph the Short-eared Owls. It had been a fine day, plenty of sunshine and a moderate sw breeze. Of course this meant the owls came out to hunt later, well after the sun had gone down, making photography difficult. From approximately 250 shots I managed to salvage two that were "presentable" - just. Not a good exercise.

 Friday on the Burgh to find the Rough-legged Buzzard. Conditions were far from good and most of the photographs were poor. However it was great to see so many birds. Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard, Hen Harrier and Red Kites plus the RLB represented the raptors. Supported by Skylarks. Corn Buntings, Yellowhammers, and both Grey and Red-legged Partridges
