Another Marsh Harrier

Just over 2 hours spent at my local watch point today was rewarded with a cream crown Marsh Harrier which came off the moor to the west of Castle Carr and circled high above the Luddenden Valley for over 20 minutes before flying over Midgley then up Cragg Vale towards Whiteholme. First picked up at 13.50 and last seen at 14.20PM. Wheaher or not its the same bird that was hanging around the Walshaw area a week ago who knows. Also 4 Ravens together.

The Oxenhope watchpoint had probably the same bird over 20 minutes earlier.
