RSPB Wallasea Island

Tuesday 21st October, Two calls today the first in Redhill, and the second in Romford, and when  had finish I drove to RSPB Wallasea Island,hoping to see the reported Rough-legged buzzard.

There is a lot of work being done at the moment by the RSPB, but still a good number of birds around.

The highlight was a female Hen Harrier, that came close as I used the car as a hide. Later while by the white gate  she was seen again giving a Marsh Harrier a hard time when it got to close, great views and was able to see the size difference between the two harriers. In the cereal field were Golden Plovers, Lapwings & Starlings, it was very windy with heavy rain showers going through.
