Dodging the showers today I ventured on to the reserve. This morning at home, in Chattenden I'd set the alarm for 4am to hear and record the dawn chorus on Dawn Chorus Day. Actually it didn't start until some 35 minutes later. I duly recorded it on my phone and uploaded it on to the Medway Local Group RSPB Facebook Page.

I got to the Bromhey Farm carpark at I o'clock, and as soon as I drew up, my attention was drawn to a flutter on the red tractor. It was a female Sparrowhawk on it. She appeared to be searching over it for a meal, anything I suppose, beetles, nesting birds etc.

I did manage to fire off a few shots, but I had the the macro lens on, so the images are not as sharp as I would have liked, but there you go.
