There has been a male hen harrier seen from the hide at Catcott Lows aver the last fortnight and I was lucky enough to see it today on my second attempt. What a great bird! Only managed a pretty distant shot or two.
A word of caution. If you intend to visit, the track that leads to the reserve is very slippy with mud at present and full of potholes. I managed to slide my car off the edge and needed the help of 5 burly birders to get back on again!
