Before Lockdown

I've just realised that the photos from the last few weeks of the classes haven't been uploaded yet.  This was a difficult time with domestic chores coming to the fore.   We had a brief visit from a male Brambling in the garden on 18th November.

Meanwhile, two Buzzards are still present in the cemetery, but this is the photograph of the smaller individual.

Unfortunately, the following photos have uploaded in reverse order, so the pictures of the Peregrine carrying a small bird from the beach were those seen first.
