Sizzling heat

Temperatures reached a near record-breaking 82 degrees fahrenheit this afternoon but surprisingly, despite a light easterly airflow, yielded few birds of note.

A female MARSH HARRIER was over fields by Deadman Hill, Sandon (Mike Ilett) and an OSPREY drifted high east over Wilstone Reservoir at 1649-1702 hours (several observers). A juvenile COMMON SHELDUCK remains for a 5th day at Wilstone, a first-summer female MARSH HARRIER lingering there from Wednesday to Friday.
