Marsh Harriers are now on the increase due to the cultivation of more reed beds in the UK.Marsh Harriers do not spend their breeding season in our local reserve,but can be seen passing during their migration.A magnificent bird.I was very fortunate to be able to take a couple of distant shots of this species in July 20009
