A bit of a cloudy afternoon on Salisbury Plain today.  But a flock of Linnets was feeding in one of their favoured winter areas and drew in a ringtail Hen Harrier and a Merlin.  A few distant snaps below.

A few random bird photos from a trip to Norfolk last week.

And a few shots of the seals at Blakeney Point - taken duing a boat trip from Morston.

I spent a few days last week near Glastonbury, mainly birding around Ham Wall area. Highlight was the flocks of Bearded Tits at Westhay - feeding very close in the reeds and on the board walk.

I spent a few hours this morning on Chipping Sodbury Common watching the Woodchat Shrike that's there.  It's been there for 3 weeks now.  Seems to be feeding on Craneflies.  Quite active for most of the morning, and sometimes coming quite close.

Another Sparrowhawk in the garden this morning.  This time a male.
