Northowram Today

Cold easterly again with snow flurry's all day.2 LBBGulls early on and a few splendid Common and Black heads heading for breeding grounds further north. A new spot for Grey wag was a nice find, and plenty of  common birds singing in the occasional sunshine. The rookery stands at 40 nests.
 The highlight today was a female sparrowhawk carrying a RABBIT it left a great big pool of blood on the snow as it took off......must be getting tough out there for the birds of prey...........

Great sighting a small accipiter carrying a much heavier mammal. Diversity - the key to survival.
