Frampton marsh area.

A good bit of my time today was spent looking for the rough-legged buzzard that had been frequenting the area. No luck with that bird but plenty of other raptor action. I found four commons while looking for the r l b, one of them a pale phase bird. Marsh harrier, hen harrier (ringtail), peregrine, merlin, sparrowhawk and kestrel all gave very good views. The glossy ibis is now into it’s sixth month on site.
