Marsh Harrier at Marazion

I popped along to the front viewing area at Marazion Marsh PM yesterday where Jan Ruhrmund enthusiastically told me she had just been watching a Marsh Harrier and she pointed out its current landing location within the reed beds.   It was indeed still there and it lifted off to conduct slow hunting flights in the central marsh area that is backed by the railway line for around fifteen minutes,  It was a bit of a push on focal distance for the Nikon 500mm F4 lens but a delight to watch as it landed and took off several times,  This was only my second sighting of a Marsh Harrier at Marazion so a big 'Thank you' to Jan Ruhrmund for sharing her sighting,
