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.
