On to Minsmere for another attempt at the Marsh Harriers from the Bittern Hide. Over the two days I managed some nice attempts but never got the light for a great shot. The problem with these birds is that they spend most of the time looking down! In addition they seemed to fly in a general circular direction away from the sun which didn't help:
A Bittern came relatively close during the morning with a nice fly past:
The Marsh Harriers were abandoned when news came of a White-winged Black Tern on the scrape. Unfortunately it was feeding right in the middle of the water, too distant for any shots. Still, a beautiful bird though in nice summer plumage.
Later in the day a couple of nice shots of Red Deer and Rabbit were possible:
