12th May 2009

A quiet morning until about 7.30am when the fresh easterlies brought the first Marsh Harrier of the year to the islands. A single all dark bird flew in from the West being mobbed by a Peregrine off the West side of Middle. It then made hard work of the easterly breeze as it headed firstly to West Kirby, before re-orientating and heading over the dunes below Pinfold Lane Steps and then inland towards the Carrs (Hoylake Langfields) - see poor record shot below.
