This female Merlin was very confiding today when I was out looking for Black Redstarts over the old BP Baglan site. Before I found her I was thinking things were a little bit on the quiet side, especially for such a nice day! As pretty as she looks, she has a killer instinct and I was also lucky enough to she her launch an attack, a successful one I might add. Didn't see any Black Redstarts!
