Cream of the crop...

Marsh Harrier and 2 Merlin passed Whitburn Obs by 10.45 today. Stoney was in the house and arrived just in time to see the Merlin's fighting over breakfast, probanly a Pipit. Not much was going on in the blasting wind so a close cream crown Marsh Harrier going north was a real bonus
