Merlin! - 22 Sep 2013

I was invited to give a Digiscoping Talk at the Holiday Beach Migration Observatory's Hawk Festival on Sunday, 22 September 2013.  The festival ran for two weekends: the 14-15th and 21-22nd.

Shortly before the talk Robin and I walked down to the beach to hang out a bit and enjoy the afternoon sunshine.  As I scanned the trees behind the beach I spotted a Merlin perched on a dead snag, so I grabbed the scope and headed over to digiscope it from about 50 feet away.  Lovely bird!
