    Nice thing about being on open land in France is the big sky and sunrises, here's one from Sunday morning.

    Well here's today's efforts, was well over 100m away, so not very clear, but excited nonetheless at actually getting a record shot. The view through the scope was a little better.

    Brilliant! (Both the experience and the shots you got!)

    Was it looking at the holes in the turned-over earth, hoping to spot a movement? I guess it would be easier to see a mouse/other there as there is no vegetation to hide a little furry creature. (Feeling sorry for his prey now.....!)

    Apparently they'll perch on the ground after a feed, not always in a tree, but of course somewhere where something can't sneak up on them.
