Raptor Watch

This mornings walk with nice weather turned into a bit of a raptor watch with the icing on the cake being a European Honey Buzzard that was first picked up by another birder but I soon was able to get on to it , it slowly drifted across the marsh allowing us to pick out the main features on it and it hardly flapped its wings at all and just glided through on the thermals . It was the 4th one that I have seen on the marsh with the last one being in 2014 .
Also seen today were 5 Common Buzzard , 2 Red Kite , 2 Common Kestrel , a Peregrine Falcon and 3 Eurasian Hobby .
