Whilst taking the Hawker Photo's, a SPARROWHAWK was seen up hunting, and one of the KESTREL pair took an interest in what I was up to, watching me from the Greenhouse roof, at one point it swooped down and caught a vole, but much more spectacular was seeing it zoom a meter or so from my head, snatching a mating pair of Migrant Hawkers that I was waiting to alight for a photo! It flew off to eat them on the roof, but one manged to escape :-)
Tomorrow being the last day of the month, i'll be out first thing for a full patch walk, hoping to add something to the months bird count, namely the Yellowhammer!
Here's the photo's of the Hawkers, ive done them before I know, but they are brilliant little creatures :-)
|I got a few flight shots this afternoon|
|Migrant Hawker In Flight|
|I reckon this one is my best flight shot yet :-)|
|It posed nicely at times too|
|At one point I got my macro set up to within 12cm of it|
