Topsham Recreation Ground

Between 11:00 to 11:30ish the Marsh Harrier was hunting over the reedbeds, last seen drifting south west over Exminster Marshes. Some very dodgy photos (below) at least allow it to be aged as a juvenile. Also an adult Peregrine overhead giving the gulls a nervous morning.
