Dartmoor - Hen Harrier & Mistle Thrush

At about 12.45 a Hen Harrier observed quartering at low level the Wallabrook between Runnage and Pizwell, flew off in the Bellever direction. A little later counted a flock of 32 Mistle Thrush in one field by Bellever Plantation. Then in a field by Pizwell Bridge two Kestrels repeatedly grounding, presumably on a kill or carrion, being mobbed by crows. Plenty of stonechats around at all the above locations.
