Northam Burrows CP

Sandymere 11:00 still 4 Snow Bunting although very skittish due to lots of kite surfers around.  A great sight off the headland by the 8th green was 300-400 Golden Plover circling around in the sun.


In my Barnstaple garden the other evening was this stunning looking male Sparrowhawk. Managed to grab a few shots through a DG window before it was off. Not as good as a Wryneck or Short-eared Owl but always nice to see in the garden (although the Finches and Sparrows may not agree).
