April 1, 2010:
Last week, the first Marsh Harrier was reported to be back here and yesterday there were at least five. Two birds were very active towards the eastern end of the large reed bed and on one occasion a bird dropped down to pick up and carry away what appeared to be a small duck. They divided their time between displaying and gliding over the marsh or being hidden from view amongst the dense vegetation.
Just for a few seconds a bird perched briefly on a large shrub far out in the centre of the marsh.
