Pallid Harrier in Essex

While some of my birding friends enjoyed some quality birds in the Isle of Scilly today, Paul,Monkey,Dick and Myself enjoyed a quality bird at Colne point Essex. A juvenile Pallid Harrier. After an hour wait, we had great scope views of the harrier going over the fields and reed channels. The under parts was a nice rufous colour and you could pick out the light collar.A great bird for Essex and a very nice find for someone? Also seen there were two Marsh Harriers, one which was wing tagged with a white tag on is left wing.
