The best bird during today’s count was a Merlin that had a look around, but like me couldn’t find many small birds and continued on its way. A couple of female Marsh Harriers caused some panic amongst the ducks when they sat on the lake shore.
Highlights today : a male Hen Harrier flew up river from Fish N Duck and flew across the Cam Washes late morning; 3 European White-fronted and 1 Pink-footed Goose with the herd of Greylags on the lake; and a pair of Common Crane spent time on the riv
The days highlights were a Peregrine over the lake, confirmation that two pairs of Common Buzzards bred in the area again this year and of course the lovely late November sunshine.
