A wet and windy day on the levels!

Driving from Wookey Hole through Fenny Castle:

Kestrel sat on powerlines.
A male Sparrowhawk flew from a low tree.

Fields near to Westhay reserve held:
25+ Little Egrets
20+ Mute swans
10+ Greylags

Tealham Moor:
4 Whoopers (closer to the road this time round!)

The star of the show, a Male Merlin which flew over the car and landed in a field just in front of the North drain pumping station. He stayed for about 5 mins before flying off, low to the ground. Managed some rather hurried shots!
