Another after work visit to the marshes and a look over No.6 tank. The Eurasian Teal were again in the flooded daisy beds and numbered c750 birds. The Northern Shoveler flocks have increased to 23 birds with 2 Pintail, 18 Common Shelduck and 12 Mallard.

A female Marsh Harrier was sat on her usual perch but she wasn’t joined by any others this evening. Small groups of Raven were heading south from their day gorging dead sheep on the salt marshes and a couple of them found enough time to harass a Short-eared Owl high overhead. A Sparrowhawk was waiting for the Fieldfare to enter their willow bed roost but it was constantly mithered by a couple of crows.

On my departure at 17.45 featured a Barn Owl hunting the fields along Moorditch Lane.
