Visited Kinnordy yesterday for the first time in ages. It was pretty quiet, but a female Marsh Harrier put in an appearance from the swamp hide, hunting over a cereal field beyond the loch. It had a green wing tag on the right wing and I wondered if this meant it was one of the local birds or a different bird passing through? The female in Delia's photo from April does not have a green wing tag and I am fairly sure the bird I saw was an adult as it had missing flight feathers.

How interesting, and well spotted too Paul.

I wonder if we can find out what's going on there?
