Lucky Raptor Day

    I stayed local today instead of going to Spurn Point for
    the day and Im glad I did, I ended up having a cracking
    couple of hours-:

    8 Kestrel
    2 Barn Owl
    1 Hen Harrier
    1 Short-Eared Owl
    1 Merlin
    1 Buzzard
    Lots of Meadow Pipit and a Skylark.

I would say the Hen Harrier is an adult female judging by eye colour and underwing pattern, a great find at the flats, I have never seen one there in 30+ years, well done.
