Monday 31st October 2011

A quick visit to Sheppey (Swale NNR) resulted in distant views of both male and female Hen Harrier, juvenile Rough-legged Buzzard, also giving distant but prolonged views (including lots of hovering) and a distant view of a Great White Egret flying W around 10:45.  Also a Sparrowhawk and up to 5x Kestrels.

A quick sortie along the Harty Ferry Road/Capel Fleet failed to relocate the GW Egret but added Marsh Harrier and Common Buzzard to the list.

Usual top quality photography.

Nice one Adam,
With 2 RLB's and several Short-eared Owls over the weekend the Swale NNR is finally coming good and up to 11 birds of prey can be seen on Harty at the moment.

Hi Adam
It looks as if it was a bit murky today, but even so, the trip was well worth while. At least you saw the birds you set out to see.
Hopefully this is going to be a good winter for birds of prey.
