More Harrier action at Wallasea

Another trip to Wallasea Island at first light this morning.

Stonechat Wallasea Island
A Male Merlin zipped along the reeds and a female was seen sitting on a fence post too before two Ring-tail Hen Harriers and a Marsh Harrier came out to play. Several Kestrel and a few more flying passes from the Merlins kept me entertained as did the large groups of Corn Bunting, Skylark, Lapwing and Golden Plover.
A pair of Stonechat came up briefly but spent most of the time feeding on the ground.
