A Gorgeous Sky

Having hidden myself out on Bransbury Common from 4.30-6pm Friday and Saturday afternoon in hope of seeing the Short-eared Owls, I did encounter various other wildlife except the desired species. Friday's overcast conditions didn't leave me feeling overly confident in any decent pictures, but Saturday was gorgeous, a bright afternoon turning the sky into a gorgeous mix of pastel oranges at sunset.

Still no Owls, but a pair of Sparrowhawk displaying, and I did spot Kestrel, Green Woodpecker, Little Egret, Greylag Geese, Mallard, Gadwall, Mute Swan, Teal, Pheasant, Red-legged Partridge, Brown Hare, Grey Heron, Kingfisher & Roe Deer all from my vantage point.
