On the dog walk today I saw a long and spectacular display from the Marsh Harriers, in fact I thought initially that there were two pairs – wrong- the second pair were Red Kites, there was a short rough and tumble to sort out who owned the reed bed area with the kites departing.
The pictures and 6 second video do not do the event real justice.
Shame I had the dogs !!
This last photo is particularly nice (in my opinion ) as it shows the female completely upside down during the courtship display. The six second video below is of one of the Red Kites which were eventually driven off
