Pallid Harrier images


The Cornish Pallid Harrier,present since at least early December when Roy Phillipps found it near Botallack, remains a thorn in my side!  I'm sure I will catch up with it soon, but for the time being, will treasure these images I took in Cyprus. There are four different birds below.  Pallid's are the commonest harrier to migrate through Cyprus and we never fail to catch up with them.  The ghostly males are truly stunning.

  4. Sam, according to people who have seen the Sennen Pallid Harrier, it has a bright uniform cinnamon-orange wash on the underparts and a very obvious boa or collar.
