Staying level headed…

By September 20, 2016Blog

Stephen Barlow reports that Hawkers are now fewer in number up at Whixall Moss, but his photo of one of the few is stunning! This Common Hawker can clearly be seen keeping it’s head level in flight as the rest of the body twists. This is achieved through a system of sensitive hairs present on the back of the head and neck.  What a fabulous photo!
