Return Of The Ringtail

After an absence of about two months a ringtail Hen Harrier was back hunting the set-aside near Island Farm this afternoon.
Fantastic bird, we've been pretty spoiled after last years long stayer and now this one.

Castle Lake yielded another year tick with this Whooper Swan  which apparently arrived on Sunday morning.

Others of note included the Green Sandpiper, 3 Lesser Black-backed Gull and a Little Grebe on the River Stell.
A few other pictures from this afternoon.
