Stubb Mill

3rd January 2010
.
An afternoon visit to Stubb Mill saw Merlins evade me for a 3rd time. Or maybe they're just too quick for me to see. Other than that, about 20 Cranes in, including a group of 7, loads of Marsh Harriers, an obliging Yellowhammer, Sparrowhawk, Barn Owl and a Chinese Water Deer. Bird of the evening was a male Hen Harrier, which glided through from left to right without stopping. On the way back several Woodcock shot over our heads, and a Tawny Owl hooted deridingly, knowing I'm not due to see another one until 2019.
