Winterton North Dunes

I had a hour and a half before Hospital
walked the North dunes to the east pool.
Walking the Dunes looking at the sea with not
a lot moving a short eared Owl came out of the long
grass in front of me as I moved to where it landed
I could see a Buzzard in a died tree so went that way
instead. As I lay down then moved to it slowly snapping away.
 The short-eared owl came along chasing it away
over the next dune. The Great grey Shrike was still
in that area time short went home.
