Marsh Harrier, ♂ from Ted Jury Hide, circled the reed bed several times from 7:45 to 7:50pm and probably roosted, I took my eyes off it for a moment to look at a Cuckoo perched in the top of the broken dead tree and then it was gone when I looked back. Also here two Kestrels and a Buzzard.
One Green Sandpiper from Teal Pool hide at 8:20pm, just distinguishable in the dusk light.
Tawny Owl calling.
Lots of Sand Martins from East Marsh Hide and three Swallows on wires by the car park.
