Marsh Harriers and Merlin and weather

here in t-east it has been foggy from dawn to midday for the last 2 days  - this morning it was 3C but one of my returning male harriers was having a real battle with an incumbent pair on his territory -- fog and tele lenses really do not mix -- add a little shadows and highlights and at least I can see which is which! a male Merlin passed by then as the cold air mixed with sun the atmospheric distortion increased to the levels of mirage at 3m -- by evening it was almost possible to get a sharp shot at 20m but not much beyond that -- a frustrating spell of weather for photography just when harrier action is hotting up
