Site Watching.

Redwings x 7 on grass close to the Royal Massala Restaurant.
Bewick's Swan is still on the Pool...which was rather quiet at 0930 hrs.
No sign of the Ring-Billed Gull.

The Bay and Shoreline..

The waves were high and I could not pick anything out except the Herring and B.H Gulls.
A couple of Oystercatchers were searching the tide line and Turnstones x 3 were by the River along with a pair of Pied Wagtails.
No sign of the Goosanders reported yesterday on the River.

Finally a male Hen Harrier (thanks to D.Julian and Colin Selway) was seen at Rosenannon Downs ....which is out of bounds. The Hen Harrier was my 200th bird on my Life List.
