An early morning visit on the 5th was a quiet but pleasant one. 1 adult and 1 juvenile Marsh Harrier were noted, as were 2 Kingfisher (one on Pursuit Pit, the other on Ness Pit). A Lesser Whitethroat was seen near to Ness Hide and a poor Grey Heron was tormented and bombarded by the local Black Headed Gulls. A juvenile Water Rail crossed the causeway at Ness Pit too.
