Another MARSH HARRIER at Wilstone

A sub-adult female MARSH HARRIER (probably third year bird) arrived at Wilstone reedbed yesterday afternoon and remained until dusk (Mike Hirst, Ian Williams, LGRE, et al), occasionally flying and hunting along the reedbed at the southern edge and clearly visible from the hide. It roosted overnight and was still present this morning, when also 2 SANDWICH TERNS flew through very early (DB, RH).

Yesterday evening, 82 Common Terns were still present and 15 COMMON SWIFTS drifted in late on (Lee Evans)
