Tuesday 5th January 2015

The Shorelarks remained and were showing well in the mouth of  Thornham Harbour. The Twite, around 20 birds, were near the small car park in the Harbour itself ,with a Spotted Redshank also in the area. . Both Hen Harrier and Peregrine were noted on the grazing marsh along with at least two Barn Owls,  joined at one point by an optimistic sky dancing male Marsh Harrier making it  hard to believe its only January the 5th !  Pairs of Stonechats remained near the observatory and in Thornham Harbour.
