On arrival, the ROSE-COLOURED STARLING showed fairly well for the small crowd of twitchers. This was certainly a stunning adult male in its breeding plumage finery, a shame I only bothered to take one photo. In fact most of my attention was on the salt-marsh where I was pleased to find a SPOONBILL casually walking across the marsh. A single LITTLE TERN was the only year tick I had on site but was a pleasing find after such a long absence from my year list!

Our next plan of action was to visit a site were Chris and Brendan had connected with Monti's before and after an hours diligent scanning we were treated to excellent views of a pair of MONTAGU'S HARRIERS! The female appeared only briefly in flight but the male quartered the field for at least 40mins as we watched this magnificent bird in awe! Also in the area were 2 Marsh Harriers at least 1 Red Kite and to round the stay off on a high, the male Monti did a spectacular aerial chase in pursuit of a Skylark!!
