Sparrowhawk in the back garden this lunch time.  Perched on the chicken house.

Plan for today was the New Forest to search out Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers.  But I thought I'd pop into Romsey first thing to check on the Hawfinches.  Loads about, and in really good light.  So I ended up spending almost 5 hours there.  Quite pleased with some of the shots with the reflection in the puddle.  New Forest will have to be next weekend.

While watching the Hawfinches, also took a photo shots of the other things drinking from the puddles.

For a few weeks now I've regularly seen a Barn Owl on the way home from work.  This one seems to be a night time only owl - never seen it hunting in the later afternoon.  Managed one blurry photo taken using the car headlights for illumination.

A trip to Romsey this morning to see if the Hawfinches were still about.  At least 8 there, and very active first thing in the morning.  But a very dull and overcast day.  Still managed to get a few shots.

Also, tried to get some shots of the Hawfinches drinking at a puddle, but tricky - they seem even more nervous when drinking.
