5th Hickling NWT Reserve

The 5 poor photos above of Peregrine? or escaped falcon. Failed to get much more detail through bins except bird was all grey above! Have you seen Peregrine in this area recently or know of escape in area. Please email if you can help. Roy
31st Warm but cloudy morning. Decided to walk down lane around 4pm. Blue sky came in from the east and by 4.30pm it was warm and sunny, tempting a Short-eared Owl to hunt Gapton Marshes.  Apparently successful, it was seemingly robbed by Kestrel. Distance and long grass made it impossible to be certain.


The Short-eared Owl

Small Tortoishell and Peacock butterflies were sighted. Peacock photographed, see above.
