Black Hole Marsh, Seaton

Black Hole Marsh, Little Egret 3, Black Tailed Godwit 20+, redshank 20+, Oyster Catcher 10+, Ringed Plover 11, Dunlin 21, Green Sandpiper 2, Ruff 1, Shellduck 4 juveniles.

A Peregrine came in low over the water and tried to take one of the Green Sandpipers, I have never seen this type of hunting behaviour before, the falcon barely inches above the water, the Sandpiper dived under the water and the peregrine flew through the resultant splash.
