Raptor-fest over Hemblington Church

Today saw a somewhat soggy group of us carrying out routine scrub and ivy clearance: despite the occasional showers we managed to complete most of the work by 1.00pm.

Despite this not being a designated survey day, I took along binoculars and two cameras and was rewarded by the first Red Kite for the 'seen from the church' list! Every now and again Peter or I would pick up a distant raptor and put down the pruners and secaturs (any excuse!) By the time we called it a day we'd seen Buzzard, Sparrowhawk, Red Kite, Kestrel and Marsh Harrier - only one of which featured on the August survey!
