I was really pleased today to pick up my first Siskins for the West Wight. At the other end of the size scale, Carole and I came across what I'm pretty sure was a Golden Eagle during a walk along the top of Headon Warren on Sunday afternoon, hanging in the breeze over the sea! An escaped Golden Eagle was spotted on the island in 2011, so I reckon that this is probably the same individual.
I checked up on Chalky, the pale juvenile Buzzard in the Bramble Chine fields, today, and came across an interesting sight:
Chalky was in the usual place, perched on a fencepost, and I was fascinated to witness the two Rabbits grazing just a few metres away. Buzzards do feed on Rabbits, and I'm surprised that he didn't have a go at picking one of them off when they were facing the other way!
There was a nice sunset over the Estuary this evening.
