200 up

No Short-eared Owl again at Burdon Moor yesterday but this Kestrel is rapidly becoming my most photographed bird of the year. Mallard and Teal were on the ponds at Far Pasture and the usual birds were in the carpark including these Willow Tit and Nuthatch.

Friendly things

These Coal Tit & Red Squirrel at the reservoir yesterday were certainly very friendly. At Burdon Moor a Kestrel was anything but to a mouse, it was having it for its lunch.

Kestrel with bait. Just a pity it wasn't on top of the fence post and a bit closer but hey.
