Hen Harrier mobbed by Lapwings at Gruinart, Isle of Islay

Picture of a Hen Harrier being mobbed by five LapwingsMay be not the greatest picture, but I was just happy to catch some of the action. This was at Gruinart during my June 2013 visit, a Hen Harrier was being mobbed by about half a dozen Lapwings. I wasn’t able to see it clearly, but I believe the Hen Harrier went after their nests, which they of course didn’t like at all.
