WWT - Brandon Marsh.
Species seen 24.
A late visit before dusk produced my first Peregrine Falcon of the year. I first saw it over the East Marsh Pool and then again at close quarters from the Carlton Hide. Even in the dim light I could make out it's bright yellow eye ring. There was one photographer in the hide when I arrived, he should have waited a few more minutes perhaps and he would have got a great close up?
Other raptors, Sparrowhawk, Buzzard and Kestrel.
There had been a Merlin reported a few days previously, however, there was no sign of it.
