Prestwick Carr is flooded and good numbers of birds turning up. These shots were the two before the new header when the Owl flew past so close an enforced crop resulted. Worth it for the glint in the eye though. Two possibly three birds present but with all the land in their usual area under water they are generally hunting the large expanse north of the bumpy road.
On the horse fields Saturdays count was 102 Golden Plover, 74 Lapwing and 3 Dunlin flocked together in the middle till flushed by a Sparrowhawk also targeting the 20+Pied Wagtail feeding on the new shoreline.
Worse weather on Sunday saw limited owl activity but this monster breezed through on a G line to the wood.
