  • Seeing it was going to be better weather up at LM thought I would drive up for a few hours and it was a nice day with the sun being out and had a good half hour watching a male Marsh Harrier flying around Grisedale hide it even landed on the other side of the pool but sadly had a few reeds in front of it.
    These are the pictures I got.

  • Very nice Jim love the Harrier shots, looks like the Robins are down n the dumps, what's up no live mealies!!

  • They looked like that even after having mealies Alan :)

    Found this one of when the Harrier landed on the other side of the pool.

  • Can't complain about having a Marsh Harrier hang around for half an hour! A nice one of the deer hind, too.

  • Thanks Nige, there were only six of us in the hide but we were here there and everywhere and one or two even went outside as it came overhead :)

  • Lovely, Jim, LM is certainly a wonderful place.  Hoping that we can go back eventually.

  • I hope you can Ann, I will be back as soon as I can weather permitting.

  • Thanks, Jim, I look forward to more of your photos and reports.  (And say 'HI!' to Hazy and Mike, should you happen to be there when they are!)

  • I will Ann, now that she and Mike are back with us :)
