Goshawks & Snow Buntings

Out doing my voluntary ranger duties at Maybecks recently and in perfect weather - sun and snow, a pair of Goshawks sailed by enabling me to get an excellent view of the pair. These once very rare birds are becoming increasingly common in the conifer woods around here.

Later taking the dog along Bay Ness (at Robin Hood's Bay) I saw a flock of about 25 Snow Buntings feeding in a field of grass with many seed heads intact. Their favourite feeding ground.
