This Sparrow hawk was busy plucking an unfortunate bird before it goes to the nest. The female appears quite aggressive as she comes across to accept it.

It seems quite strange to see this bird that you normally see dashing along flat out hunting birds, just gently breaking off twigs to add to the nest. I know the chicks have already hatched as it is also bringing in food.

After seeing many of the Avocet chicks succumb to predation from Gulls it's great to see this Oyster Catcher chick looking strong and almost independent.

I love to spend some time watching all the action of a sea bird colony.

I am so willing on the Grade Crane Project which aims to re-introduce a self sustaining population of Cranes to the west of England. This little youngster was showing for the first time on the 2nd of June. Good luck to him.
