Sunset over the moor
The only raptor I did photographI thought that I would go and try to get a better photograph of the Short Eared Owls. Sadly they did not appear until it was too dark to get anything but the most blurry blobs. There were several birds over Greenaways and the MOD and two other birds quartering the Closes. The Ringtailed Harrier put in a brief appearance and the Starlings put on a cursory display. There were a large number of people there to see the Starlings and the car park was very crowded, a friend of mine refers to it as the "Autumnwatch" effect. it is a pity that they were a bit disappointed but there was a stunning sunset as compensation.
