A Bit Of Local Culture But Few Birds

Church at Boisset

There were quite a few House Martins going over today and a lone Sparrowhawk but little else.  We decided to go to Boisset which is a favourite birding place especially for Golden Eagles but today we would attend their annual fete by the beautiful little church.

Medieval weapons
There were demonstrations of medieval weapons and music all delivered in full costumes.  Add to this lots of nice food and drink but still no birds.

Medieval music
Sitting on our terrace in the dusk a buzzard size bird flew towards the pinewoods.  By the time I got my binoculars it had disappeared. I  would hazard a guess that might have been an Eagle Owl.
