Mount Tabor Marsh Harrier

After last weeks Red Kite and a possible Gos on Sunday I gave it another couple of hours today at the Mount Tabor watch point. First 90 minutes was very quiet with just 2 Ravens and 2 or 3 Common Buzzards one of which is very pale (so look out for it). Was just about to give up the ghost when I picked out 2 raptors over Castle Carr, one was a Buzzard the other a cream crown Marsh Harrier. The Harrier slowly gained height and was joined by two Kestrels before drifting over Cold Edge towards Fly Flats.

One common buzzard had passed over Tabor towards Castle Carr this morning. 4 common buzzards circling high over Windy Bank this afternoon. Kestrel hopping at the bottom of a wall between Roils Head and Tabor oblivious to the car. Female sparrowhawk sat on the kids trampoline yesterday morning.
