08.11.18. Birdlog.

A good selection of birds from the meagre light that was available in the 30 minutes of birding after work this evening. A ringtail Hen Harrier dropped immediately into its roost while 2 Marsh Harrier took a more leisurely pace before coming into roost. There were 6 Ruff that concealed themselves within a roosting flock of c400 Lapwing.

The fields by Hill View Farm still hold on to the wintering herd of 14 Whooper Swan.

As the light faded c8000 Starling flew in and circled the area before dropping in their reed bed roost (1000’s more heading east).

Earlier in the day Sean O’Hara watched 320 Pink-footed Goose drop into No.3 tank.
