A stunning ringtail Hen Harrier was the highlight of the day on 28th, an odd looking bird being very plain ogangie underneath and dark above. Will post pictures when I get my media player working. Also a hunting Peregrine, 7 Buzzards, 6 Kestrels, 2 Ravens and 5 Tufted Ducks. 29th August, returned in the evening with DJP but no wind and very little happening only 4 Buzzards, 2 Kestrels, 1 Cormorant and 3 Tufties.

Last night had 5 Ringed Plovers and a Redshank at Whiteholme. Today got a surprise when I flushed a Short-eared Owl that was roosting on the ground in the heather at Roils Head, it took off but soon came down landing in cover so I left it alone. That's the third shortie Ive had in this area over the years.

Me and Dave back on our old stomping ground on 9th produced yet another Barn Owl, 2 juv Buzzards and a Spotted Flycatcher. Today at Roils Head found 2 Spotted Flys in with several Willow Warblers + 2 juv Bullfinches that have been knocking about all week.
