A mid morning highlight....enough to brighten a grey day!

Yet another cold grey morning....Brent Geese, Wigeon and Teal still much in evidence albeit in smaller numbers.
Peregrine  present on New Island....not seen him there for some time now!
Spit Hide thrashed yet again...even worse than a few days back.
Walked to North Wall...several Chiffchaffs en route plus Knot, Grey Plover and  Black Tailed Godwits in harbour.
....and then...just beyond Breech Pool ...a magnificent male Marsh Harrier..a superb bird quartering the reed beds and eventually flying over horse field and back beyond Honer Farm...a magnificent sight despite the rotten light and cold wind atop the wall! (Camera at home! )
