Strumpshaw Raptor-fest!

On a truly spectacularly beautiful morning, Brian, Norman, Mark and I met at the Fen at 7.30-ish for a chat and a stroll around.

Almost immediately we were entertained by an amazingly diurnal Barn Owl quartering the meadow for the thick end of two hours!

As we followed it along towards the pump-house, other raptors put in an appearance: two different Red Kites, several Buzzards and Marsh Harriers and a Hobby.

Nice to see a pair of Stoats charging up and down the path: I guess they probably had kits nearby...

Looks like that barn owl is saying good morning to you David

Yes indeed! About five times, Chris!
