My first hen harrier of the year. Spring has definitely sprung whilst I have been away.
Had two hours in the field with Mrs B today which was a bit luxurious. We sat in the tower for the first half of this short session. I got three year-ticks in the first three minutes and then things calmed down considerably. Hen harrier (male), skylark (1) and 50-strong flock of lapwing were the year-ticks. Also here four shelduck, a few wigeon and teal and a kestrel. Later we checked out Eskilstorpsstrand for 100+ scaup.
