Two local Marsh Harriers

variable light but low winter sun on Sunday making it tricky --- a juvenile possibly female and a 3cy or more male -- he flew down at something that the juv had also investigated earlier so presumably carrion in the reeds but neither bird managed to extract it possibly due to the machine guns rattling in the hide! best opportunities though for a long time now the number of hides has been reduced considerably
