Resident NORTHERN GOSHAWK puts in rare appearance

Whilst walking the dog this morning between Ringshall and the Coombe, had a bit of a raptorfest.

Minimum of 15 Common Buzzards (almost certainly more)
1 Red Kite
1 Sparrow Hawk
Most birds soaring up to cloud base and moving off quite quickly.

Incidentaly, on Monday, went to Crafton near Mentmore where on and over large stubble fields were up to 12 Red Kites and similar number of Common Buzzards, flying around low and landing on stubble. Quite like the Sandon area but without the Harriers (Don Otter).
