Hen Harriers and Buzzard Snake

We headed up into the hills in the morning on a bright and sunny day - it had rained during the night. We watched Curlew, Red Deer and a distant Eagle. Then onto the south Rhinns where there male and female Harriers, Lapwing Chough and Raven too. Gannets out to sea and an occasional wet afternoon. We watched a Buzzard with an adder in its tallons - amazing sight and close enough to be really clear. Redpoll, Twite and Wheatears in quiet places and now, as I write, the sun is shining and it is warmish too.
