I see Marsh Harriers every time I visit my local nature reserve but trying to capture this magnificent bird in flight is not easy. This is one of my best attempts to date.

Thank you for your interest in my previous upload, "Snail Pace," which is proving to be a bit of a slow mover reaching even RC status...

They really are one of the hardest birds to capture - I would love to get a shot like this. I will have to keep on trying. Nice one!

Way above any in flight I have managed, as for the snail being slow, no pun intended, there are a lot of folk away which will make a difference. - gary

Thanks, Adrian. Virtually a full frame, hence the close RH edge which left me with little room for an alternative crop.

An excellent inflight capture Terry, I reckon the snail didn't do that well as too many epzers' were too shy and wouldn't come out of their shell to vote!Wink
