Marsh Harrier
After more than fifty years of photographing birds there are not many birds left on my “to do” list. one has always been the Marsh Harrier so last month I spent three consecutive mornings at Leighton Moss filming male Marsh Harriers as they gathered nesting material. It was a wonderful experience and took me back more than thirty years to the day I spent guarding the nest of the first pair ever to breed there. This week’s gallery is full of male Marsh Harrier photos and there is even a record shot of the food pass at a nest more than 400 yards away – it looks to be in the farmers field! Click here
