Humphreston Farm area, Albrighton, Shropshire.

Out for an hour or so around the fields near the village.

I Started the day well with a few garden fly overs, the first was a pair of Ravens (Cuervo / Corvus corax), followed by a Common Buzzard (Busardo Ratonero / Buteo buteo) and best of all a Western Osprey (Águila Pescardora / Pandion haliaetus) which was flying over the village heading west.
