Snow and raptors

An early morning start to visit moorland in north Northumberland produced the goods.  Highlights were a flock of 32 golden plover, 7 greylag geese and unidentified owl and a 'ringtail' hen harrier.

Later  in the morning a plantation produce a male goshawk and flocks of crossbills (14).  There were very few other birds but close views of 3 roe deer were worth the walk.
