First to catch my eye, a raptor with prey flying N through the trees on the NW corner. Bins at the ready, emerging from the tree line was a female Kestrel that landed on a security light 30 or so yards away. So camera and scope on 'quick-fire' mode and a range of images, the best being:
Behind the bird's legs were two, dark grey/black 'pellets', quite a size, a bit like owl pellets. Me thinks this light is a place the bird likes to rest at.
Next, the familiar call of a Great Spotted Woodpecker that decided to land in a tree close by:
And no surprise what number three in a trio of successes was.........sorry!
