Raptors at Charlton Marsh

On Monday 4 November, a female Sparrow Hawk traversed the marsh in front of the hide then flew tight along the  wooded bank on the east of the marsh.

Shortly after, a juvenile male Peregrine hovered briefly over the marsh.  He was joined by an adult female as he headed for the foreshore, possibly teaching him the pair hunting technique used by local birds.
