Osprey and Montagu's Harrier, Wallasea


Distant Montagu's Harrier.

We went to Wallasea Island to see the Montagu's Harrier that's been hanging around for a couple of days. While we were waiting for it to show an Osprey flew in and fed in front of us for fifteen minutes! According to Jeff Delve and Glyn Evans (EBS) the Monty flew right by us while we were still rubbing our eyes.
