Monty's Double

Yesterday saw our third visit this term to RSPB Blacktoft Sands.  Jan found and rescued a Poplar Hawk Moth from the visitor centre.  Later, we saw most of the same birds as last week minus the Grasshopper Warbler, but plus a Bearded Tit.  For those who didn't get lost for the afternoon class, they were rewarded with a food pass between the two Montagu's Harriers.  The female didn't seem to be marked as per the reference books!
