Did today the raptor transect that was disrupted on Friday by the Snow Bunting. Worked in a military firing zone not far away from my house - excellent steppe / rangelands there. This area held the Tawny Eagle in August. Ezra found there three Little Bustards over the weekend but I couldn't relocate them today.
Raptor activity was good after the air heated up - 6 Imperial Eagles, 1 Short-toed Eagle (rare in winter), 2 Pallid Harriers, 1 Barbary Falcon again, 1 Merlin, many Common and Long-legged Buzzards etc.
Barbary Falcon - 1cy
Eastern Imperial Eagle - adult
Pallid Harrier - adult female
