Female Montagu's Harrier, Croft Pascoe. The Lizard, 26/04/2014
This female Montagu's Harrier was found at Croft Pascoe on The Lizard. These elegant raptors no longer breed in Cornwall and are only seen in the county during Spring and Autumn migration as they pass through heading to and from their breeding grounds in Eastern Britain.
I filmed her battling against the wind as she hunted over the heathland.
