male Hen Harrier

not a bad spell for raptorial encounters if we exclude the 5 hours of Pallid Harrier -less watching yesterday -- I am sure I will find one one day!
Having been surprised by the sudden appearance of this bird the camera was in the car and set for Sunday night so I quickly altered settings without looking and fired -- when I looked at them thats  when I realised I was on 1/320th second -- moral get your camera out and ready even if there is nothing obvious

You lucky sod, what a bird to see let alone photograph, a very nice set indeed.
