More craking

Actually saw the Corncrake today as it flew whilst I was looking for it from the car, flew towards me as well, but of course I couldn't see it on the ground. Last night it could be heard from our bedroom (if you listened very, very carefully with the window wide open...).

Drama this morning as scanning the Shunan everything went up and I was in time to see a Peregrine take a second go at an adult Oystercatcher, probably one of a breeding pair on the back of The Shunan. The Peregrine had it in its talons as it lifted off but dropped it from a height and followed it down.

Threatening skies tonight as the rain came in from the south.
