Day at RSPB Mersehead


Spent the whole day wandering around RSPB Mersehead and saw plenty of Barnacle Geese as well as a few Pink Footed Geese and Canadas. Also saw several Yellowhammers, Reed Buntings and a small group of Long Tailed Tits. Duck-wise there were Shelduck, Teal, Pintail, Shoveler, Wigeon and Mallard. Highlight of the day was a short glimpse of the resident female Marsh Harrier. All the birds were singing well and I got a few sound recordings that I will post soon, including my first Skylark of the year.
