Halvergate Marshes

 A quick trip to the Marshes after work yesterday didn't provide me with a Glossy Ibis but instead some fantastic close up views of Short Eared Owls and a stunning male Hen Harrier. The Hen Harrier was hunting near the farm and was looking rather smart in the sunshine.The SEOs were near the bridge off the Acle straight .One was so close i just propped up on a nearby gate and watched with out need for me bins-Super bird ! A good number of Marsh Harriers and 3x Little Egrets were also seen.
On way back to van i spotted a number of Herons heading towards a tree.Pulled over and saw 3 pairs spread out in the tree top. Good place which im sure ill be checking out again soon in the future.

 Happy Birding,
