Thursday Spring 10 - RSPB Blacktoft Sands

Marsh Harrier (c) 2008 Jackie Dawson

I couldn't manage binoculars, telescope and camera, so Jackie Dawson very kindly stepped in & took the photographs for today - my thanks to her. The bird of the day was a Hobby, seen by everyone in the afternoon, but both sessions saw the Bittern flying over the reeds. The Marsh Harriers gave good views and among the waders we saw 2 male Ruff (with ruff feathers) [pm only], Spotted Redshank, Black-tailed Godwit, Green Sandpiper, Dunlin etc. Overall a very good day, despite the very poor turnout!
