Another aerial master, one of many atCoronation pit, Stewartby. Sadly I am informed that this wildlife haven is to eventually have an industrial incinerator put in to it................

Song thrush

This was a six inch worm in its beak until it was prepared for airborne transport back to some hungry chicks from our garden

Red footed falcon

another look at the male who graced Coronation pit at Stewartby

Tree sparrow

Summer Leys in N'Hants is where this character posed for the camera, a nice little reserve that gets its fair share of rarities


As the name suggests, these are very fast fliers and difficult to get clearly in the lens - this is my best effort to date but one I will strive to improve

Red footed falcon

This little chap was at 'Coronation pit', an area that was excavated for the London brick company and is now a magnet for hobbies and other falcons as well as water birds.
Sadly this site will eventually filled with household waste
