The marsh was good in the morning but nasty later (the wind was that strong it blew the fence at the viewing point on No 6 tank down! Despite this the Cuckoo made an appearance from the track along No 5 near the first black gate. A Marsh Harrier was hunting all over the marsh, seen on half a dozen occasions.
There were Meadow Pipit and Linnet all over especially on the road to Marsh Farm hiding from the elements behind the raised bank there.
Lordship Marsh had 3 Wheatear hiding behind lumps of soil for protection from the elements, the image shows how blustery it was on the birds feathers. I finally managed an OK shot of a Linnet, they nearly always fly off just as I assume the (photo) position.
I also got a Meadow Pipit shaking its head blurring the crown to make an interesting pattern.
