Red House Farm hide

Main Sighting: Hen Harrier
The Hen Harrier is not a personal sighting but from a visiting birder, part of a party, saw the Harrier in a tree from Red House Farm hide. When it took off heading towards Uskmouth he could clearly see the ring-tail. They also saw a Marsh Harrier - he obviously knew his harriers. The Glossy was on the far bank of Bec's directly opposite the sea-wall hide from around 7:45, took off west at 8:12.
