Had a horrible cold today, so didn't want to do much walking in the freezing winds.  Instead had a short drive around Salisbury Plain.  Spotted a Hen Harrier, but too late for any head-on photos - just managed this as he drifted away from me.

Got to Farlington Marshes for sunrise hoping to see the Short Eared Owls and some Bearded Tits.  Half successful.  Three Short Eared Owls hunting for a couple hours. 

A Shorelark turned up on the beach at Hayling Island a couple of days ago.  Popped down this morning and luckily it was still about.  Very photogenic little bird, feeding on the shingle very close to the path.

Early visit to Arne this morning.  Not a lot to photograph, but loads of Dartford Warblers shooting about and staying low.  So here's one of them, plus a shot of Corfe Castle.

Quite a few Ring Ouzels passing through Hampshire this weekend.  So popped down to the New Forest to a spot where they're normally quite reliable.  At least 4 about, although some peope were claiming as many as 15 earlier in the day.  Still, I got a few okay shots in quite nice light late morning.  Also, a Kestrel just after catching a vole on the way home this afternoon.
