superb photo, Stanley, the males are so different from our hen harriers, never understood why they were considered to be conspecific. love those warm colors and great details, top notch, many tfs!!

Brilliant shot Stanley. This bird, and the female (another excellent shot!) are noticeably different from our Hen Harrier (the taxonomy seems a bit fraught!). An exquisitely sharp image of this colourful harrier, good work.
