Hjelme West 23 December 2012

Strong SE wind, cold

A quick trip to Hjelme West produced a Goshawk hønsehauk chasing a Woodcock rugde out over the sea as the best sighting. The Woodock escaped at great height a fair way out to sea.

Otherwise a Great Northern Diver islom, several Black Guillemots teist and at least two Otters present.

The best bird of the day, however, was picked up from my living room window - a juvenile Golden Eagle kongeørn. Also of note in the garden was the House Sparrow gråspurv flock is now up to at least 45 birds - this flock just gets bigger and bigger - wonder where they are coming from.....
