Tough birds!

Hello

Eleanor was up at Harrington Airfield this afternoon and saw a female Merlin on two occasions, about half an hour between sightings...

Robin Gossage has kindly forwarded me some images of birds battling against the weather elements. These pictures were taken at Snettisham in Norfolk but could just have easily been taken in Northants such is the rain and wind of the last two months!

Regards

Neil M

It's a tough life being a Lapwing!

And when there is no cover
they just have to put up with it!
The picture shows Wigeon and
 Lapwing feeling the full force!
