Short -toed Snake Eagle

Immature SHORT-TOED SNAKE EAGLE, Ashdown Forest, East Sussex.

This Mega rarity was seen on numerous occasions through out the day --flying, sitting, hovering and snake catching.

Only 4 previously  accepted  records including 2 from the Channel Islands.

This report being the first truly 'twitchable' Eagle in England apart from our resident species.

And in a supporting role my first ever image of a TREE PIPIT, Ashdown Forest
