Raptors featured strongly today with the best being a Red Kite over the grazing marsh early morning, a Peregrine over the Pines and a Merlin perched again on the grazing marsh mid afternoon. Other birds of note during the day included a pair of Stonechats on the east bank, a Grey Wagtail over west and a pair of Goosander in Thornham Channel. A few moths as well today, which included March Moth and Shoulder Stripe with the best though being a Mottled Grey.
