Swan Lake

Hornsea Mere in East Yorkshire is a great place for birdwatching, there is always something to be seen.  This is a collection of photos I took yesterday of Mute Swans, which although they may be common are certainly beautiful to look at. These Swans are all wild.

Raptors galore

The last few months have been great around here for raptors.  Four hen harriers, a pallid harrier, up to eight short eared owls. a couple of barn owls, lots of kestrels and a couple of sparrowhawks visiting my garden on a daily basis. Here are some photos from the last couple of weeks.

Kestrel - so close I couldn't get all of it in shot
