Beesands Ley

Reasonable numbers of waterbirds for August on the ley this afternoon which included 51 Gadwall, 15 Tufted Duck, 4 Pochard and 96 Coot.
Re Alans Juv Marsh Harrier the bird i saw there on Wednesday was distant so i was guilty of assuming it was the normal bird seen on and off for many years locally. Whilst it does make random appearances on the marsh more likely i would think that only one bird is hanging around the vicinity so i probably saw the same bird as Al.
