Leaches Petrel Grafham Water 25 November

Leaches Petrel 25 November.

Having failed to connect with any of the previous inland Petrels Grafham finally produced a result - in dramatic fashion. The bird was watched being taken by a Carrion Crow at close range, but somehow managed to escape/get dropped, only to become caught in a tree as it fell, and was promptly rescued !! On inspection, damage suffered by the Petrel appeared to be superficial and excelent views of the bird were enjoyed in the hand.
