Marston tick

After Dave R’s viewing of the Hen Harrier at Marston STW I was determined to track it down if it stayed long enough. No tracking needed today – I’d just passed the scrape Willows making my way down the track when a host of noisy Corvids drew my attention to the said bird flying low over the reed bed to disappear over the trees. Ales Lees turned up shortly afterwards and said he’d seen it flying over the field to the South. Despite only seeing the bird for about 10 seconds I managed to bang of a few shots, although the Lincolnshire Grey did it’s best to ruin them for me. Later a nice little Grey Wagtail showed well as did fifteen Curlews off Mill Lane. (Click on thumbnails for full size image)
