Popped over to Marsh Lane last Saturday lunchtime and this morning. Didn't find much around on either visit but the weather for the time of year was decent.

Saw a Grey Wagtail from the Oak hide this morning which was the first I'd seen here for quite a while.Not a keeper but nice to see.

The long staying eclipse drake Pintail was joined this morning on the CP pool by a much better looking drake.

By far my best find was on Saturday when I was alone in the Oak hide at 1.15 PM and I saw a raptor a long way off near the 2 storey metal hide.

Wasn't sure what it was but it didn't look much like a Common Buzzard so I rattled off some distant shots before it disappeared from site. I didn't realise what it was till I put the shot on the computer and saw it was a Marsh Harrier.Certainly not a keeper but it was a reserve tick for me.
