Marsh Harrier Roost North Duffield (Friday)

I've just spent another couple of days in the office so I haven't been able to get out birding, however I've just heard from Chris who's been down to the North Duffield Carrs Marsh Harrier roost this evening.  Apparently there was 8 birds in tonight.  Hopefully I'll get chance to get out and check the roost over the weekend, though it does depends on the lure of the coast...

There was a few hundred Pink-footed Geese through the Lower Derwent Valley today and I've just heard that the first (as far as I'm aware) Jack Snipe of the autumn was a Bank Island this evening.

Inspired by Tims new camera and the pictures he's been getting in the week since he's had it I've decided to take the plunge and upgrade to the Panasonic Lumix FZ200 so that I can hopefully have some slightly less rubbish pictures on my blog! Though I can't guarantee  it! Will hopefully get to try it out over the weekend with the aim of knowing what I'm doing before Dave and I hit the Scillies in a few weeks.
