Default Park gate rspb - 19 - 03 - 2017

This is one of my favourite places to visit, I know itís just a short walk along the high street with the houses, shops, hotels, pubs & food outlets on one side and on the other Marsh land and small pools leading on to the Estuary but still a great variety of Bird species from Linnet to Hen Harrier.

Up until around 15.30 we only saw the usual suspects but in the next 15 minutes we had a great view of a Marsh Harrier over the March with a Merlin flying low over the undergrowth, then to top it a female Hen Harrier in the distance this on top of a Kestrel showing well for the photographers in the group and at the last minute before the rain set in we saw a Buzzard so a great Birds of prey day was had by all.
