Marsh Harriers at Llanrhidian

2 Marsh Harriers present again this morning, an adult female and a juvenile (2 video grabs of the adult allow comparison with the Kenfig adult - same bird?). Also a Pied Flycatcher, 26 Sedge Warblers and 7 Reed Warblers were ringed and a minimum of 11 Green Sandpipers noted.

Barry - this is unquestionably the bird seen to fly high west from Kenfig Rivermouth on 24/07/2014.

Cheers Neil, these birds get around a bit!

interesting that a female and two juvs have all arrived at the same time albeit in different places - I wonder where they have come from...
