I had to collect something from The Old Police House this afternoon, this gave me the chance to visit the Reedlings again. While there a few other birds caught my eye;

Peregrine Falcon: a high flying male caused the everything to panic including the Bearded Tits, who sat motionless in the middle of the reeds.

Sparrowhawk: no sooner had the Peregrine moved off out came a female. This meant the tits stayed hidden even longer.

Skylark: two singles flew south-west.

Fieldfare: 22 flew south-west.

As the sun was out I couldn’t resist a few more pictures.
