The raptor day!

Monday 22 June

After last night's excitement in the woods, today was very quiet and turned out to be one of three raptors following the early morning rain.  The sight of a lone female Kestrel crossing the neighbouring field was good, a very early Barn Owl as we took a (relatively!) short walk following an evening meal was better but, certainly, best of all was the juvenile Goshawk devouring its late morning breakfast.  As can be seen from the accompanying photograph, not so much a "bird's eye view" but rather more of a "bum's eye view!"
