Report Paul Marsh

Description of sighting

First visit for about 4 weeks,day started warm and sunny but clouded over by mid day.The Down is very green at the moment and the birds were taking advantage of the cover in the trees and bushes.Reasonable numbers of species seen,mostly low or single numbers.Largest group was adult and young linnets.Swallows hunting over the short grass.Peregrine seen briefly as I arrived,but could be heard later on.A good view of a Peregrine harrasing a flock of Oystercatchers at high tide in the riverat the eastern end of Brean Down.No catches made.
