Far Pastures yesterday.At least 3 buzzards, kites, common snipe, 2 kingfisher, sparrow hawk, LT tits and the usual teal, coots etc.Leucistic Pheasant at Houghton Gate area, seen while on our way to Far Pastures. A first for me.also managed a couple of shots of this unfortunate bat, Yesterday.I say unfortunate, as a female Sparrow Hawk claimed it and drowned it befor flying off with It.Maybe thats why we don't often see bats during the day.Nice seeing Doug and Co,! But you missed all the excitement, with the bat, sparrow hawk and the kingfisher landed once on the perch.
Nice Shots Ray.....Love the Sparrow hawk pic...Catch up with you sometime..
