This rather ill looking Barn owl was seen on a fence line at March Farmers mid-morning, it did eventually fly a short distance, though i guess its not long for this world. This Kestrel was hunting from horse-back, a new behavioural sighting for me. It returned to the same horse several times, the horse seemed oblivious.
Another sunset west from the south barrier bank at Eldernell

This weeks full moon rising over the B1040 pools (known as the town fifties). The high tides that are associated with the twice monthly cycle can cause the Nene to flood providing heavy rain has fallen in the catchment. In spite of the storms in recent weeks we are yet to see such an event.
Icelandic Black-tailed godwits have arrived on the reserve's artificial floods near Eldernell, some 760 are currently present having been displaced, by deep flooding, from the nearby Ouse Washes.
