  • Media: Spoonbills Surprised

    Spoonbills (Platalea leucorodia) in flight. Poole Harbour, Dorset, UK. 18/11/11. The appearance of a marsh harrier briefly put these birds to flight before they settled again nearby. (Taken from the Middlebere side of the channel. Also visible from Arne)
  • Media: Middlebere Peregrine

    Peregrine falcon surveying the assembled waders opposite the Coombe Heath hide overlooking the Middlebere channel at Arne. 08/01/11. I've often read about this distinguished visitor in the Arne blog but never seen it on its favourite perch until today. Sadly no-one in the Arne hide to witness...

    Firecrest (Regulus ignicapillus) in holly tree. RSPB Arne car park, Dorset, UK. Extraordinary, busy little birds. Only an ultra-slow video sequence would do them justice, but that would also require the world's fastest cameraman.

  • Media: Barn Owl Remains

    Severed barn owl beak and feathers (Tyto alba). Dorset, UK. At least that's our best guess. Found near a fenceline in open fields on the Middlebere peninsula across from Arne. A peregrine kill maybe? Would a buzzard take an owl? Possibly the predator tore the beak off as a safety precaution...

    Taken at Arne in January
