Raptors Everywhere

No good photos here. Mostly massive crops. Just an unusual day.

All of these were found on a short walk. IMO, quite unusual to see so many different raptors in such a small area.

Final tally 3 Kestrels (a family), 1 Peregrine, 1 Brown Falcon, 1 Spotted Harrier, 1 Barn Owl, all found within a few hundred metres.

Peregrine and Kestrel (Not good friends).


Best buddies again (not).

Brown Falcon

My old buddy, the Spotted Harrier. Now seen at its preferred distance from people. Never did get close enough for a clean shot. This bird is stupidly cautious.
