Having now seen Geoffrey's comment. I don't see harrier in it. It seems to
me the head and neck are not long enough (forward of the wings) for a
harrier and the rear edge of the wing is curved like a goshawk, in
harriers it is more straight. I would expect to see feet in that pose
photo of a harrier but I don't, (Harriers legs are much longer.)


 On yesterday's walk there was some discussion about a couple of our

1.        This bird was seen only in the distance at the first property,
no-one has come up with an ID so any info would be appreciated with the
benefit of some grainy pics.  We generally thought that the tail was too
long for a Little Eagle and the underwing pattern not really similar to
anything really.  The white on what looks like all the primaries was quite
visible, whiter than it appears here.
