Started at Caple Fleet early, the Barn Owl was out hunting the reed beds, and also a single Short Eared Owl as well. Three Marsh Harriers were also about early hunting from one side of the road to the other, plenty of Grey Lag Geese flying over head. A single Grey Heron was also hunting the marsh area. On to Elmley Marshes, as I got onto the track just past the first farm area through the first gate, I could see the Harris Hawk, being chased by some other birds, managed to get a couple of images but not very good, due to the dull sky and rubbish weather. The Harris Hawk looked as though it was carrying some moss in its claws, (see photo), would it be building a nesting site..?. There were a few other birds around Redshank, Lapwing, Mallard, Canada Goose, etc. Here are some images for you all, not to good though, not really photography weather..
Looks like you had a nice morning.
Keep them coming.
Thank you, it was great to see the Hawk. Waiting for feedback to see if they think its nesting down in our area...
number 2 barn owl is lovely James
composition and setting spot on
Hi James, nice pics. I might have to get down there this weekend and see if the Harris hawk is still around. I know that they're not native to the UK, so is it likely that this is an escaped captive bird?
