Marsh Harriers

On the same day as we went on the Wildlife in Somerset tour we stopped off at RSPB Ham Wall as it was still quite early. We walked to the Avalon hide which was very quiet a few water birds in front of the hide like Gadwall, Widgeon, Coots etc. which was a little disappointing but we didn’t have time to stay for too long.

We walked back keeping our eyes open but still very quiet and ent down to the Tor hide and sat for a while our patience was rewarded as we were lucky enough to see two Marsh Harriers, a male and female hunting across the reed beds. I was really pleased to get a set of images of the Harriers and although at a distance I feel as though they are for me some of the best I have taken. Lots of room for improvement but I am happy with them.

It was soon time to make our way home after a lovely day despite the weather!
