Shellness (north kent)

Had a Raptor fest day on Sheppey today, started at Shellness early doors and connected with the Rough-Legged Buzzard that has taken up residence around the muswell manor area, had terrific scope views of this bird.
A ringtail Hen Harrier kept company as well as 4 Short-eared owls and both Peregrine and Merlin hunting nearbye.
What a superb place for raptors, also adding Marsh Harrier, Common Buzzard, Kestrel and Sparrowhawk.
Capel fleet hosted a flock of sixty strong Corn Bunts, two Green Sands and many Bearded Tit and again picked up the rough leg towards the manor.
