Merlins on the moor


Recommended Posts

Wish I had taken those.

So you spent a day chasing Merlins across Dartmoor then went all the way to Bedfordshire on the Sunday. Clearly a man with stamina or else a complete nutter! Or perhaps both.

Two days on Dartmoor ;) But yes, it was a long weekend! My original plan was to spend all weekend on Dartmoor, but made a last minute decision to chase the sun and add some variety by doing Old Warden. All good fun!

Fabulous stiff as usual Shaun. How do you get so close to the action?

Great photos and thank you for sharing with us. I remember seeing the green Merlin's on the moors above Oakhampton several years ago, quite close. I hadn't noticed before that some hame rotor cuffs and some not, does anyone know the reason?

As far as this event goes, a mixture of experience and a lot of luck! You can't really miss when shooting them coming and going from the HLS, but you need a bit more luck to get them from the tors.
