ÇMARSH HAR­RIER

Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

It’s still rarer in the UK than the Golden Ea­gle, with maybe 400 pairs, but back in 1986 the largest har­rier was still re­stricted to a few re­serves in East Anglia and the south-east. Since then, it has be­come wide­spread and nu­mer­ous in the for­mer, even nest­ing on farm­land at times, and it has colonised new ar­eas such as the Som­er­set Lev­els, and marshy ar­eas around More­cambe Bay (Leighton Moss RSPB is a strong­hold). More birds re­main here over the win­ter than pre­vi­ously, too.
