Behind You!
Not sure if this snipe on Parkgate marsh has rear view mirrors. It needs them because coming up fast behind it is a juvenile male marsh harrier! Taken at a range of around 500m.

That looks like Redshank on the lunch shopping list! Did the Harrier get it?

I don't think so as the harrier took off and went back on patrol immediately after its attack.

Many thanks Jeff. It did some nearer passes, but I lost those shots due to a technical error (unintentionally switched from AV to M).

It is hard enough to get one bird in flight but two at once is remarkable. Well done.
