Pallid still Present!

The Pallid Harrier that I found on Skomer is still around!  We’ve had odd reports of “a” harrier over the last few days but I managed to catch up with it again yesterday with my camera- and the right lens this time :)

The side-on photo shows the really clear collar and pale breast which marks this out as a Pallid Harrier, rather than the more common Hen or Montagu’s Harriers.  It also shows the full crop of the bird, so its probably been feeding on mice, voles or rabbits whilst its out here.  And hopefully it will like it so much that it sticks around for a bit more, we’ll have to wait and see.
