Blacktoft Sands

A very quite day at this RSPB reserve by the Ouse.

Cold biting wind probably attributed to a lot of birds remaining hidden but in front of the hides there was very little to see.

A maximum of three Marsh Harriers were up at one time and I managed to capture a distant shot.

I think the Greylags capture the atmosphere of the day, they were pictured in front of the Ouse Hide, in the grasses on the edge of the water. Many ducks and Shovellers were a sleep on the waters edge.

Great shot of the Marsh Harrier. I've been there once in summer and can imagine how bleak a place it could be in mid winter.

Many thanks for linking to my site :-)
