Barn Owls and Marsh Harriers to say nothing of the coot chicks
Great day at Leighton Moss. Marsh Harriers out in force. Also saw a kes swoop into feeder station and take out we think a great tit. Later a Sparrow Hawk causing hijinks around the reed beds.
On the way home we were passing a barn/ field/river area we really like for barn owls and were remarking on whether there were any about when a beauty flew over road in front of us. Parked up and watched her (or him) bringing back a large vole or something into barn and out again.
REMEMBER ALL PICTURES ARE CLICKABLE FOR A LARGER VERSION.
