Out with SC again today. On route to look for Ring Ouzels we had two Buzzards being mobbed by corvids (I recognised both birds as my local pair Rusty and his mate, some miles from home). Another Buzzard picked up on route then a blank at the Ouzel site so I went in seach of one of my favorite birds the Merlin. Was lucky to find a male hunting what appeared to be small moths on a hillside, it caught 11 in an half hour period. I then picked up the female at a fair distant (managed a few record shots of the male only. Other birds included 2 Short-eared Owls, 1 Sparrowhawk, 2 Kestrels, 6 Oystercatchers, 2 Twite, 2 Wheatears, 1 Fieldfare, 1 Redpoll and the usual moorland species.
