Last week Janet Richardson sent us a couple of pictures taken at the viewpoint, I did not find them untill today. They were the first reported sightings of Marbled White present in the nearby grassland and the two fledged Marsh Harriers which were very close to the viewpoint at the time. Its great to see a picture of one youngster trying to find its balance while tackling a landing amongst the willows.
