Larking about on the Shore.

Went to South Gare today to see if we could find the Shore Lark that had been reported yesterday, took a while but the bird was eventually located on cabin rocks. The bird was very mobile but worth seeing. On the way back Sylvia spotted a Marsh Harrier at the Blast Furnace pools, first one we have seen in this location. The heavens opened when we called at Scaling Dam and it was fairly quiet here with only Cuckoo and Dunlin of note.
