Winter setting in

Week 46; 17 November 2017 - JPR

We haven't managed to photograph our Harrier friend for sometime (although they are about) - perhaps it's because the Greater Spotted Eagles seem to have center stage

On the drive, a Western Great Egret dropped in to forage next to the road

Whilst in the wooded area a male Eurasian Sparrowhawk with quite a bulging crop flew out from the trees

A Tree Pipit was feeding near the roadside

A Mauryan Grey Shrike also posed obligingly in the soft morning light

Mauryan Grey Shrike (Lanius lahtora pallidirostris)

Again one of those morning's where we watched and counted birds, more than taking images
