VIP VISITORS ARRIVE ON THE RESERVE

There are just under 400 pairs of these birds in the UK and we were very privileged to receive a visit from one of these pairs yesterday and today.

A very fine pair of Marsh Harriers appeared over the reserve and then spent at least one night here. Last seen at 13.30 today.

My big pond birds all ganged up on one of the Harriers that landed near a Little Grebe nest. Amazing to see all these different species coming together to see off the Harrier!

Just a quick update, our Harriers are still around after 4 days which is encouraging and today there was evidence of possible nest building activity. See below:-
