Hen Harrier again

More photos of the Hen Harrier male, but still taken from one side of a field to the other on another day when the forecast sun didn't appear. In the sequence it tries to drive a Buzzard away from the area it was hunting in but eventually gave up and moved on.

The closest it ever got, but believe me it's still far away

Hunting, all of the buntings and linnets scattered

A prolonged attack on a Buzzard which failed

A determined character, especially when you see the size difference

The size comparison obvious in this photo

The Harrier means business in this one but the Buzzard isn't impressed

It's got the Buzzard's attention but to no avail and it gave up after this
