March 2016 Great Grey Shrike Forest of Dean UK

This Shrike had been reported in the Forest of Dean for many weeks now.  As it was a sunny weather forecast and it may be disappearing for more northern climes soon, I thought I should get down there and take a look.  Was well worth the early rise.

1st Day of Spring one of my favourite birds the Sparrow Hawk

It was great to have some early morning sunshine.  Managed to watch a pair of Sparrow Hawks breaking of twigs and starting to repair their nest.

March 2016 Lots of Kingfisher activity

It's really exciting to see so much Kingfisher activity at this time of the year.  I can never get enough of them.

March 2016 Brown Hare Cotswolds UK

It's the time of year for mad March Hares.  This one seems quite calm however.  I love Hares they are such a great animal.

Snatched an odd hour when the forecast changed to show clear sky at dusk. Well worth the quick local trip!
