    Good work, the background for the kingy is spot on here. What's the Hen Harrier up to - not nesting already?

    Fine variety of top birdies.
  3. No he has a large field Vole in that mess ,they had cut the grass a few weeks ago in the area he was hunting and grabbed one on the edge taking the grass as well as he didn't want to drop it .This bird has no rings and I had the best views I have ever had ,and watched it hunting for 2 hours . My guess as its a very young Juvenile ,that it has come from Northern Europe possibly Finland or even arctic Russia as they breed later than ours. All the English young are ringed ,but some Scottish birds are not ,but I have a feeling this is a Northern Europe bird as generally you don't get close enough for a shot thats worth having with UK birds.

    The Kingy is great but for me No2 is the winner because you don't see many shots like this.
