Ducks and Harriers

Sunday 13th February - Cloudy, mild, southerly 4/5, heavy showers
Lade - 1000hrs A disappointing WeBS count this morning with hardly any birds on south pit due to a brisk southerly. North pit held 216 Pochard and 8 Goldeneye. The airspace over the airport fields was thick with hundreds of corvids and Woodpigeons, disturbed by a couple of harriers. A pair of Ravens joined the throng.
Romney Marsh - 1600hrs Did the monthly roost count this afternoon in dreadful weather conditions. Only 15 Marsh Harriers came to roost, plus a ringtail.
