HEN HARRIER still present today - and great piccies taken by Mike Ilett !

This beautiful and endangered juvenile HEN HARRIER was still performing today - frequenting the rolling countryside visible from the layby at the top of the Coombe Road at Kelshall. Mike first found this bird several weeks back now and it looks as though it may stay for the autumn. The local farmer has stocked the area well with Grey Partridges (250 or more have been released) and with these and an abundance of rodent prey, the bird can survive for many months.
