Zipped over the mosses late this afternoon for a quick look at the Monty's Harrier, still ranging over the fields around Great Altcar.
Gorgeous, elegant bird that came in circling high from the south before dropping to quarter the fields, often disappearing for long periods.
Frustratingly, its appearances tended to coincide with particularly heavy downpours, although they were over fairly quickly, allowing me to admire the harrier sailing through the air with that superb deceptively lazy flight action.
Marsh Harrier out over the fields too, with the usual Buzzards etc.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
