Lade - cold, dry and sunny, NE4 - Another fine, sunny day but with an increasing wind off the bay. Yesterdays Goldeneyes had moved on from south lake while a Dartford Warbler showed briefly from the track along with three posing Stonechats.
Walland Marsh - Joined CP out on the Marsh for the monthly harrier count this afternoon at our usual spot where up to eight Marsh Harriers came to the roost site, had a look, thought better of it and cleared off elsewhere. Most odd, but something seemed not to their liking. Also seen in the area, Buzzard, Kestrel, Barn Owl, five Ravens, Stonechat, Cetti`s Warbler, Water Rail, Skylark, Mipit, Corn Bunting, 10 Snipe and a Jack Snipe. On adjacent fields plenty of Lapwings and Golden Plovers, plus four Great White Egrets.
