Bodney, Norfolk 1545-1600

A brief, fortuitous stop to overlook a large field of maize stubble produced a wandering flock of 200+ Skylarks, large numbers of Crows, Linnets, and a distant hunting Kestrel.  The Crows then lifted off quickly from the field, this alerted me to an approaching raptor species, then, a large Goshawk drifted over the woodland and field and appeared to alight in a belt of Scots Pines, this of course attracted a few bold Crows to launch a frenzied mobbing attack on the raptor.  Moments later the Goshawk reappeared and soon drifted away behind a belt of Scots Pines.
