Marsh Harrier and Water Pipit

15th February 2020 – overcast/rain soon SE4 then S6/7/8
A least one Water Pipit remained in the flooded horse paddocks between Biggar Bank and Biggar.
A check over the sea (0800-0900) produced just 7 Red-breasted Merganser, 4 Red-throated Diver and 3 Common Scoter.
Wildfowl and Waders
The 12 Scaup (3 males) remain and a female Goosander was logged. The Brent Goose flock held 316 pale-bellied birds.
A male Marsh Harrier hunting over the island was the best of the rest.
