Short Eared Owl, Hen Harrier and Great Northern Diver

Well a long day visiting Hayle, Carnsew Pool, Marazion, Long Rock, Sandy Cove and Men an Tol.  Bit of a slog but superb views at the end of the day of Short Eared Owl and Hen Harrier. The sun was low in the sky and the Short Eared Owl flew in a great direction for the camera/light. The female Hen Harrier was not so obliging and difficult to photograph but we did get some record shots and it is certainly the closest I have been to one of these magnificent birds.  Earlier in the day I did get a possible Sandwich Tern at Carnsew and the Great Northern Diver in summer plumage again at Marazion seen as many of you liked in yesterday's post.
