Sandyway exmoor

Went for a drive out over the moors,  not expecting to see much due to the rain,  but the weather gave way to sunshine and it was a raptor fest. 6 kestrels in 2 different locations 1 kestral catching a sloworm ? Or similar feeding on the wing.1 peregrine, many buzzards individually but most impressive 5 buzzards on reedy upland Moor, all hovering and occasionally plummeting. Meadow pipits, skylarks and a few bullfinch. Goosander and 2 chicks,but technically they were just inside Somerset.
