Stall Moor & Upper Erme Valley, near Cornwood

A female sparrowhawk flushed and chased a dunlin out on the moor only for a peregrine to appear from nowhere to snatch the prey. Amazing sight!

Also: 9 grey wagtails, 9 wheatear, 1 whitethroat, 8 chiffchaff, 2 Spotted fly & 170 linnet.

Common hawker & golden-ringed dragonflies on wing.
