Raptor sightings

Marsh harrier sighted from Domen Las hide YnysHir at around 6pm on Saturday.  Possibly the same one that was filmed on Cors Dyfi by DOP?  Very chestnut plumage and yellow-gold head.

Indoors yesterday I was surprised to hear loud calls from a bird of prey, first thought was that someone had squeezed my RSPB toy peregrine!  Grabbed the bins and rushed to the window to see two peregrines flying low over the house towards Cwm Wyre.

Pleased to report that two of the original five pheasant chicks have survived thus far, adult tail feathers just appearing.
