Second trip of the year to Brownsea Island today.  Hoping to get a few more Red Squirrel photos before the island closes to visitors for the winter.  I had a couple of shots in mind - ones of the squirrels jumping, either from head on or from beneath.  Some success.  Quite pleased with some of these.

Went searching for the Cranes on the Somerset Levels this morning, introduced as part of the "Great Crane Project".  Only very distant views in the mist.  Will have to try again on a sunny day.  Also, Grey Herons (one eating a rodent of some sort), and a Marsh Harrier.

Tried to photograph the Blood Moon during the lunar eclipse early this morning.  Tricky to photograph, as it's actually quite dark when fully eclipsed, so high ISO required to avoid motion blur.  But I got an okay record shot.

Spent some time this afternoon at the lakes hoping for Hobbies.  Instead, got some shots of a Southern Hawker in flight, plus a Common Sandpiper and a Grey Wagtail.

A trip to Arne today to try and spot Ospreys, as the RSPB had opened up new parts of the reserve for their Raptor Weekend.  Only one very distant view.  But good views of a Marsh Harier at a new hide.  Shame about the heat haze.  Hopefully they'll keep the new hide open through the winter as it should become a good spot for Harriers over the next few months.
