Marshside Raptors

After a 5 hr stint last Sat (20th) from the Sandplant viewpoint and seeing 6 raptors (buzzard, kestrel, marsh harrier, merlin, peregrine, sprawk) but not the hoped for hen harrier, it took just 10 mins today to pick up a male hen harrier (10.15am) hunting over Outer Crossens Marsh (the ringtail was otherwise occupied down Eyes Lane!) . Can't be many other places in the UK where 7 raptors can be seen within a few hours from the same point.
