Yesterday on my way home from work I saw a 'dog fight' between a female Merlin and a female Sparrowhawk just north of Warkworth. They were very close to the car and it was hard to see who was chasing who...

News from the north today, the Sandhill Crane is on its way south, surely to be grounded in Northumberland in this rain and mist? Or will its next stop be Cley? I bet it'll be wandering around Holy Island's harbour fields tomorrow...

I'm off for three days after today so Thursday will do nicely. I still think it will decide to go over the sea a bit and end up in the Netherlands. Nice Green carpet. I saw a Snout at work yesterday.
