Marsh Harriers, Blacktoft Sands

With heavy showers all day and no sign of them passing, we headed to the Singleton hide at Blacktoft for a few hours. Marsh Harriers were plenty being surrounded by them all evening. Plenty of food passes. Then out of the blue one dropped down onto the island infront of us and devoured a whole clutch of black-headed gull eggs. The gulls dive-bombed the harrier, making contact, but it stayed put until every one was eaten. A couple of crows were on the sideline, hoping for a free tea but they went hungry.
