Marsh Harriers

well the two juvs are still alive and making the odd flight today but their plumage looks rather unkempt possibly due in part to the heavy overnight rain -- this is the intruding male again -- he has been displaying madly and today was escorting his mate back to the nest from over 1km away but I tend to think they have certainly failed -- the two sparring juvs are from two different nests -- at one stage one dropped on one of the young juvs in the reedbed this morning with much squealing being produced but no real harm done
