At The Burgh between 09.30-16.00 the Pallid Harrier was showing on and off mainly fairly distant. b On one occasion between 50-100mts for long enough for me to fire off a burst off 30 images which should have produced some good shots. When i went to review the images i realised i had knocked the camera setting to "M" so every image was a write off. Apart from that disaster i had superb scope and bins view of this cracking bird.
Also seen there 20+Common Buzzards, 1+ Red Kite, 1 Merlin, 1 Hobby, 1 Peregrine, scores of Skylarks, several flocks of Corn Buntings, a few Yellowhammers, good numbers of Goldfinches and Linnets, several Chiffchaffs and Common Whitethroats in the hedges and best of all large numbers of Grey Partridges in coveys of 10-30 at least 100+. It shows what can be done on farms.
