Filey's Got Talons

Not the best of conditions for either raptor passage or photography, but the same small area by the clifftop here in Filey produced a respectable bird of prey species list on the 10th - a pair of Short-eared Owls, Sparrowhawk, Osprey (all pictured), plus Peregrine and Kestrel. When a warm airflow eventually comes, there'll be a more impressive roll call, but in the meantime, it beats watching (or having) a telly.
