Hen Harrier at Trewey Common

Trewey Common and the Zennor Moors are long-established moorland wintering habitats for Hen Harrier, Merlin, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel and the very occasional Snowy Owl. In fact, it was a census of the harriers which unearthed the Snowy Owl. I waited for an hour before this first year male appeared alongside the road at a distance of approximately 150 yards. Although not award winning shots, the montage gives a different flight perspective of this agile raptor. Try working out the upside down angle as it pounces on its' prey!
