Grey Day

Jonathan Taylor had a stroke of luck this morning when an adult male Montagu's Harrier cruised past heading north near Dog in a Doublet. I later made a search of the nearby farmland but apart from three male Marsh Harriers, a few Yellow Wagtails and three Grey Partridges I wasn't as lucky.

The Partridges were near Knarr Cross Farm and another "grey" bird was at the Dog in a Doublet, where a juvenile Grey Wagtail still with a rather short tail was evidence of early breeding success there.
