Drive up onto the moors behind Marske this evening, Kestrels galore - dozens of them from Marske mood over towards Holgate pasture. But even better was 2 possibly 3 Short Eared owls. Sod’s law the light failed us.

Heard this unusual bird 'singing' on several occasions on South Parade but never managed to see it. This morning a ring necked parakeet flew down the access road behind my flat on South Parade !

Cleasby Lake, the weather was a bit dull this afternoon for Dragonflies with only Common, Azure and Red-eyed Damselfly seen on the pond. Walking back to the car I found a stunning male Southern Hawker hanging from a twig in the hedgerow.

A Peregrine falcon flew over me while I was cycling passed Croft Circuit. I knew something was up there because the birds were all frantic. It went into full stealth bomber mode but didnt get anything. Superb to watch so close. Robin King and I saw one in that area a few years ago...hopefully same one.
