Braunton Marshes

When arriving at the Toll House on the bike my attention was focused skyward on a murmuration of starlings forming a ball shape (like a fish ball) to escape a hunting Peregrine. Near the White House I was photographing a Great tit when a sudden gust of wind passed very close to my right shoulder. A female Sparrowhawk landed on a branch only 2 metres in front of me, the great tit escaped!
