Reculver

Just a short post about my trip to Reculver this afternoon . I started of with a close in Guillemot and an equally close in flock of 20 Mallards ,  abit further round past cold harbour i picked up a  Short-Eared Owl flying in off the sea at about 3.15 pm , it  flew inland and then dipped down below a bank out of sight , this was a very welcome year tick and very pleasing to see , i carried on my walk back along the green bank towards the oyster beds just adding several Meadow Pipits and Linnets on my way , then i was greeted to a fantastic view of a Ringtail Hen Harrier really spectacular bird flushing approx 30 Redshanks and 15 Little Egrets were also  spooked from there roosting spot . Here are a few totals of what i saw this afternoon :
