Two species of Harrier on patch this week. Looks like last year's wintering Marsh Harrier has returned. Adult Female with large pale wing patches.
Since Shorelarks were reported I can no longer expect a patch free from people early morning.
Well I did have the beach to myself one lucky day (the photographers were targeting the Harrier.)
So good to watch them preening, drinking and feeding.
Kingfishers on most ponds and Black-tailed Godwits (30+) in one flock.
Still many birds to see. From my house I managed 5 species of Thrush as well as Siskin and Bullfinches; making the walk to the shops most enjoyable.
