Photo: Male Montagu’s Harrier and Marsh Harrier, Blacktoft Sands, July 2015

This summer a pair of Montagu’s Harrier bred at Blacktoft Sands RSPB Reserve and raised a chick to fledging stage

One of the features of the Montys’ behaviour was the males’ constant defence of the territory, with birders treated to some spectacular aerial displays
