Clifton Bedfordshire. Tues 13th Jan 2009.

I made a trip out to see the flock of Tree sparrows at Clifton. It didnt take long to get there and on arrival the sparrows were showing well. They were quite mobile flitting between one field and another, helped by a local sparrowhawk. But at times would give good views, a stunningly marked bird and one i hadnt seen for a few years now.
Later that day whilst taking my dog out for a walk, just between wrestlingworth and cockayne hatley, i saw a harrier species flying low over the fields, i couldnt tell any plumage traits as the light was bad and i didnt have my bins.
