Marsh Harriers at Fowlmere ...

My best ever sightings of this species, sadly the light was very harsh and the birds were backlit .... you can't have it all.

At least one pair of adults and three juveniles on view, I saw several food passes and witnessed the clamour for attention from the youngsters every time the parents returned to the nesting and nursery area, very high energy.
Graham Barkers excellent video of the day can be viewed on the link below.


                                                              Nice focus

I don't know why but I seem to get more than my fair share of Raptor pooping images.  


  1. You should only worry about pooping harriers when it lands on you John lol. You caught some great action shots though

  2. Shame about the back lighting Doug ........

  3. Nice action shots John, thanks for the link, much appreciated.

    1. My pleasure, it is a worthy video for publicity.
