A glaring gap in the life list finally filled, with excellent views of the Westcliffe Ring billed Gull. The rest of the day was spent on Sheppey, finishing in style when all 35 Marsh harriers, that had made their way accross the marsh from the RSPB reserve, took to the air together... a fantastic site. Aswell as the Marsh Harriers, the viewing ramp managed to produce a distant Short eared Owl, ringtail Hen Harrier, Common Buzzard, Bewicks Swans, a couple of Green Sandpipers and a flock of at least 60 Corn Bunting. A small group of Bramblings were seen on the way down, feeding in one of the ploughed cover crops, but despite being seen shortly before arrival, the Rough legged Buzzard refused to play.
