River Caen, Horsey Island. Braunton

9.30 - 10.30am walk with the dog. Within 100m Buzzards, Kestrel, great views of the female Marsh Harrier, a female Merlin getting mobbed by crows and bird of the hour which I though was a short eared at first but displayed a white rump as it flew off - pretty sure of a female Hen Harrier but would be happy for someone to verify. It flew across the Caen and out over Horsey Island, typical Harrier flight pattern. All the other regulars present. Great bit of birding - rubbish walk for the dog!
