April 28th - I spotted this bird of prey hovering, almost totally still, over the heath by Anglesey Basin at Chasewater. He’s an interesting character. I know what species I think he is, but I’m unhappy about the details. Can any birders help? Many folk don’t realise that Brownhills is host to loads of species of birds of prey - from Owls to Buzzards to very occasionally, Kites.
This fellow was certainly an impressive sight. Sorry about the poor photos, it was nearly 7pm and the light was lousy.
