Bad weather again today, the old phrase that March comes in like a Lion and out like a Lamb appears to be the wrong way around this year. As it cleared away around five pm today I walked the dog and the binoculars. I couldn't quickly put my hand on the compact so out I went without it. If only I new a stunning male hen harrier would pose for me about 20 metres away what sublime views I had of it floating on air as it hunted the field in front of me for 3 to 4 minutes. So with the same odds of winning the Lottery it would hang around I ran home ( in the car) and got the camera. You got it, no Hen Harrier so I walked on down to the good old waste disposal and photographed this new in Chiff Chaff and my first House Martin for the year, and that was a challenge!!
