Killers on the rampage.

Yesterday in a flooded meadow, between Railway Land and the chalk Cliffs of Lewes, I stretched my entry level camera to the limit to snap a Heron gulping down Great crested newts at approximately one per minute! The newts emerge about now from hibernation in rocky banks well above high water mark such as the railway embankments Railway Land, where newt and frog eating Grass snakes also Hibernate. Meanwhile one of the fastest killers on earth, a Peregrine falcon, waits as patiently as the heron but on the cliff above, to stoop on an unwary Wood pigeon at over 100 mph!
