male Marsh Harrier on the patch

a cracking bird but I have not worked out yet whether it is the same male that has been on site for the last 5 years -- plumage has progressed as expected but this year it seems just so much more adult like though at 6 or 7 years of age it should be of course -- shots with Canon 5D3 and Canon 300 3.8 II with 2x III converter --
 in the bottom two shots it had found the Bittern and delivered a well directed shot of poo towards the offender in the reeds -- I have seen them mob Bitterns frequently but never seen one try to poo on its enemy
