Blacktoft Sands. 15/05/2016.

A late afternoon trip up to the Humber and Blacktoft Sands RSPB resulted in excellent views of the female Montagus Harrier as it lazed round over the reserve. Also in view was a Bitten making steady progress heading east over the reedbeds, it kept going till we lost it from view!

The usual reedy things were creaking whirring and chinking from the reed beds, the highlights being Chetti’s Warbler and Bearded Reedlings (Tits).

Towards the end of the day I was watching over the distant reeds and saw a large bird of prey hovering, now this should have been ringing alarm bells but no, it was only when the bird got mobbed by corvids that I realised it was an Osprey! This flew closer and eventually disappeared behind our hide!
