White-winged Black Tern and Raptor-fest at Ormesby!

With a lovely blue sky and shirt-sleeve temperatures I had a very quick dash out to Ormesby. The Tern was showing at Hubble-range again, but twice flew overhead (unfortunately I couldn't track it with the camera on a monopod!) Great naked-eye views, though....

Most impressive were raptor numbers: a pair of Sparrowhawks, a Marsh Harrier, several Hobbies (including one twenty feet over my head!) several Buzzards and a Kestrel. Like the WWBT, these were generally distant, but still very entertaining.
