Tree Sparrow


Marsh Harrier
I spent a large chunk of the day (7.4.06) fruitlessly searching for Ring Ouzels in the hill-country west of Peterbrough. Then I went to local Ringo hotspot Eldernell in the evening and found none there. I did find a nice singing Tree Sparrow in the hedge by the counter drain, next to Eldernell Pit. I found the chirping and sometimes sweetly squeaking notes very pleasont on the ear, and got really great views of a normall very shy bird. At the same spot I photographed the Rabbit, while the female Marsh Harrier was an experiment in digiscoping a flying bird at vast distance.
