Before sunrise the local raptors are still in their trees. Red Kites:

Common Buzzard:

A Red Kite powers towards the sunrise:

Winter wheat and Cuddesdon from the east:

Three grey geese headed south down the Thame Valley - Greylags:

Red Kite:

There were good numbers of Fieldfares in the frozen fields this morning, about 600 in total:
