juvenile Marsh Harrier hunting Coot

I have never seen this behaviour on the local pits but this juv was really trying to get a Coot out of the water today; it was amazing how quick the reactions of the Coot were often leaving the chasing harrier well behind in the strong wind but the harrier is also very agile -- the action was never very close but one day!
