Marsh Harriers still roosting despite massive floods!

I popped across to North Duffield this evening to see if the site was underwater like most of the rest of the valley and to see if there was any Marsh Harriers still roosting if there was somewhere for them to do so.  So far the water is not covering the whole area and the Marsh Harriers were still present and I reckon there was at least 10-12 birds roosting tonight - At one stage there was a line of 6 birds in the air together!

Additional interest was provided by some Pink-footed Geese that dropped in, as well as an assortment of waders and gulls but nothing out of the ordinary.  A couple of Barn Owls were out hunting and a Tawny Owl was calling by the hide again.
