SC dropped me off at a moorland site for a couple of hours today whilst he went off filming in another place. Sunny afternoon started off well with a pair of Stonechats which are always nice to see. These were followed by the odd looking Common Buzzard sat on a hill side and a female Kestrel sat on a telegraph pole. Another buzzard was seen in the distance and a female Merlin shot past me at close range and then headed down the valley. Finally the best at the last, a ringtail Hen Harrier was picked up flying low over the moors before gaining height and heading off into the distance. Also stack loads of Red Grouse, a few pheasants and a some Fieldfares kicking about.
