wintering Marsh Harriers

as usual I have ben spending a lot of time watching the wintering Marsh Harriers around the Humber; the odd thing this year is that a high percentage are 2cy male, 5 out of 8 watched going into Blacktoft last night and 5 out of 7 seen today with just a single juvenile --- in the poor light as they go to roost the upperpart pattern is of little help in sexing them unless you can see the underside of the primaries --all photos after sunset so lots of noise
