Male Hen Harrier with its catch, Isle of Islay


Picture of a male Hen Harrier carrying a large catchSpotted at Gruinart, a male Hen Harrier carrying away its catch. Hen Harriers can be spotted regularly on Islay, but this was one of the few times I’ve seen one during a successful hunt. It all happened very quickly and unfortunately my camera strap got caught on the handbrake lever when I grabbed it after spotting the Hen Harrier, so this is the best picture I managed to get of the event.
