Headed off to Walland Marsh to try and get a better view of the Crane only to find the footpath took me away from where I saw it on Monday, and despite walking half an hour towards the wind turbines I couldn't locate it. However had good views of up to 6 Marsh Harriers at one time teasing the thousands of Lapwings and Golden Plover. The several hundred Greylags stayed put.
Earlier in the afternoon I went looking for the Bewicks at Midley only to find Mutes but stopped off at the feeders for the Sparrows
I also tried out the lense at 400mm and 500mm on the same bird as thie Collared Dove stayed still long enough.
|Collared Dove at 400mm|
|Collared Dove at 500mm|
By 3.30pm the light had gone and no Harriers came into roost by the Woolpack so set off for home.
