Marsh harrier

Marsh harrier (Circus aeruginosus)

  • Gleb Berloff
A marsh harrier perched in flowering bushes at Lakenheath Fen, England. If you live nearby, then I strongly recommend this place. I guarantee marsh harriers, and there was also a red-footed falcon around this year in May! This female was mobbed by birds for a while. Seen the same day as the red-footed falcon posted earlier

Thanks! I thought the harrier perched in some flowers was interesting, a "gift" for the wetlands in some sense.
