Took a trip to CBNR this morning and bumped in to GH, AW, DL
and had a good natter with Roy in the bird viewing area, it was fairly
quiet on the bird life front the bonus was a Buzzard high up or was it the
Marsh Harrier ? thats been seen locally it had the same missing gap in
it's wing and the Kingfisher flying down river which I've not seen down
there for a while, and the Field vole popped its head out to say hello.
1 Buzzard ( Marsh Harrier ?)
1 Grey Wagtail
3 Chiff Chaff
4 Willow Warblers
10 Canada's and the regular Tits and Finches
1 LTT, 3 Wren
1 male Reed Bunting
1 Sedge Warbler, GH got a fine pic of one earlier as well
and 2 Swift over the cabin area the first I've seen this year in this area.
Next I had a drive up to Top Withens where I spotted about 20 Golden
Plover a windswept Little Owl and a Kestrel catching prey but whatever
it caught it was big which surprised me and then up to Fly Flatts for distant
view where I seen 2 Oystercatchers and plenty of Canada's sheltering from
the wild wind.
