Out this morning with Stewart along the Holpool Gutter, MSC and back down Lordship Lane which produced the following:  juvenile Marsh Harrier alongside the gutter and over No.4 tank. 2 Green Sandpiper flushed by a sailing narrow boat on the ship canal. 4 Little Grebe also on the canal. The ‘Splashing Pool’ held only 2 Coot, 2 Little Grebe and a single Moorhen . A  male Kestrel was given a hard time by 6 Carrion Crows and a Sparrowhawk was also in the area. Back at the car a male Stonechat sat on the fence and a Kingfisher was heard calling below somewhere on the gutter.
