Thanks all!
I never tire of watching one of our local Harriers foraging. They fly literally at grassblade height and the photos reveal unbelievable wing surface control. Amazing :-o
 
I love seeing a grey ghost, they are pretty scarce because all imm and female are brown. Marevelous capture, especially the face.

Yes! We routinely get them at this location. I could watch them hunting, all day long :p
