Life And Death
The first young chicks that I've spotted this year are young moorhens. Warming themselves in the spring sunshine, further on though I found a bad sign for them . On a fallen willow not far away, there was a raptor perch where perhaps a sparrow hawk or maybe an owl tears up his prey with a good vantage for escape if need be. You can see signs of both rabbit and pigeon kills here with fur and feathers. But hey that's life not everyone's cup of tea but I like finding these places.
