Looking down, looking up
It was a good morning for raptors. At least 15 Common Buzzards were in the area, and among them, for a good 10-15 minutes, was a female Goshawk, loafing around before coming in directly over my head and off towards Ranmore Common. This was 'top-trumped' by a Honey-buzzard that appeared with a Common, but then peeled away and purposefully headed westwards (at 12.45hrs). A Common Redstart (below) and a couple of Ravens were also seen.
