|Common Buzzard, found a few years back, sitting in the sun on the top track of the patch. A rare sight these days. (its that blade of grass again, I swear it follows me around)|
So having been trapped inside the house, it is with regret that I delve once more into the archives in an effort to keep the blog ticking over.
|Two summers back I was just getting out of the car at Skinberness, and in time to catch this Kestrel|
|And again a few years back we visited the Red Kite feeding station in Dumfries & Galloway.|
|As can be seen this bird has been tagged, each Kite around the UK is tagged with two colours, one colour denotes there year it was born, the other where it was born. So if one drifts into another county it can be ID'd and recorded|
|More common Buzzards, again at a time when they where seen like this on a daily bases on or above the patch.|
|Golden Eagle, photo two years ago, when we had a full week of scorching weather on Mull|
|And lastly a Peregrine, sat close to its nest on a crag in Lancashire, the photo was taken using a Nikon attached to a Swarovski 80 on full 60X zoom|
