Venus Pool - Hen Harrier take 2

It's my birthday today with 100+ Yellowhammer, 30 + Reed Buntings etc invited to a party in the crop field.... The star guest was of course the ringtail (female) Hen Harrier which put in a couple of appearances early afternoon!

Despite the overcast conditions, a sight I could never tire of seeing here!

Dropping in every now and then....

And coming ever closer!

The closest approach :-)

The Corn Bunting count was up to 17 today and here's some of the flock perched up!

A male Sparrowhawk and Merlin firing through the field as well, completed a brilliant day - happy birthday indeed :-) Just a shame Craig (Midlands Birder) and friends had to settle for brief distant views late afternoon!
