Patch Raptors...

A few hours around the local patch at Worlaby this afternoon,got me a respectable 5 species of raptor,with lovely views of 2 hunting adult male and juvenile Marsh Harrier and also great views of an immature Peregrine putting on an aerobatic show down at the river.The numbers of species where as follows:8 Common Buzzard,5 Marsh Harrier(2 adult male and 3 juv's),9 Kestrel,the afore mentioned Perg and a single Hobby.Other notable sightings included a single Swift at the river,2 Green Sandpiper in the Soak drain and a single Greenshank around the decoy ponds.A good few hours despite the wind and drizzle.
