Braunton Marsh

When I got home from the earlier stroll, I found a message from Roger Doble about a bird that had been seen on Braunton Marsh on the recent WeBs count. So on my way to the Indian takeaway I stopped out on teh marsh and scanned around more in hope than expectation, but as often happens there it was: a Common Crane! The same one seen some weeks ago, or another arrival? It went into defensive mode as some ducks took off when a presumed Buzzard flew in , buit this turned out to be a Marsh Harrier! The Indian takeaway rounded off a great day!
