The ring-tail hen harrier flew from the marshes over the village towards Halden Hill at 08.05, (yesterday it did the same at 08.22). A little later 2 ravens over the marshes were probably the highlight of a brief walk. More sedge warblers singing (4+), at least 1 reed warbler singing and a single Cettis. Over 150 sand martins feeding low over the lagoon. A few ducks still included 2 pintail, 2 shoveller, c20 teal and 2 tufted ducks - both males.
