Exmoor - Easter Monday

Been back to same area of Exmoor this afternoon

Highlight was a Ring Tailed Harrier being mobbed by a Buzzard
There are at least 3 SEOs in the area and there might be five given what other people in the area were also watching SEOs at the same time

Also fighting Skylarks.... something I have never seen before.

Have covered a few miles today, as I saw and photographed the Osprey flying through Shapwick Heath at 9:15 this morning. I must be mad but I love Somerset and all that it has to offer.
