More Raptor Persecution.


OK so Birds2blog is struggling to keep alive and to make matters worse I've chosen to fill in today with another gloomy and tragic wildlife story and more to the point one about a Red Kite and close to home to make matters even worse.

Marsh Harrier. Dennis Atherton.

Obviously not a Red Kite but an excellent photograph of the female Marsh Harrier taken by Dennis on a recent visit to Leighton Moss. Well we've seen pictures of this species on Birds2blog more than once before but....each one is as good as the one before it and they're all brilliant. Thanks for this Dennis it helps to brighten up the blog on another day when it needed to be for more reasons than one.

I'D SOONER BE BIRDING!

Until we get some kind of deterrent for these wildlife crimes it will just continue Pete. :-(

You might as well try to stop it raining. On a brighter note had a nice family party of seven stonechats at Ogden Clough on Pendle yesterday! Br, Mike

Good point Mike....WHAT CAN WE DO is a pretty dumb question.

Seven Stonechats in a family party 'full brood'....records don't come any better than that and I really appreciate your passing this on Mike.
