A quiet week in mid March..............



An out of foocus immature Goshawk on the edge of town today................

It's been a quiet few days.

The Goshawk shots were a hurried affair from the car window on a busyish road: never a recipe for success as it proved in this case when it flew off before I could even sort out my settings. It looked a bit worse for wear, maybe it had a tough winter...............



No grebes in the port nearby, just a few common ducks including this injured drake Black Scoter.


Plenty of Scaup around.


Other stuff around included White Tailed Eagle, Great Egret and Brambling. In town the last week there have been almost no birds, just a few Dusky Thrush.

  3. The Goshawk shots have a beguiling-looking background, pity it's from the road!
