'Orange Harrier'

'Orange Harrier', Ouse Fen, 13th January 2012 © Brian Groombridge
'There has been some interest in the 'orange harrier' seen at Ouse Fen & Fen Drayton.  I put some poor quality 'record shots' in my Cambirds album (BrianG).  Some people apparently had trouble finding these images.  I captured a few, somewhat better images today, and attach a couple in case they are of any use for the Gallery.  The technical quality is very poor, but the bird is interesting, and these give some indication of its unusual appearance.  Head & neck marking more Pallid-like than I recalled, but wingtip shape Hen-like. Interesting...' BG
