Cuckoos, Hobbies and Marsh Harriers at Stodmarsh

Here are my two favorite photos taken so far this year. As it happens, they were taken within about an hour of each other, at the same location - Stodmarsh NNR in Kent.

I've been to Stodmarsh perhaps half a dozen times now, and every time I've been, I've seen Marsh Harriers. They are completely reliable!

 What I haven't seen before though is nest building, which is what this female is up to.

Shortly afterwards, a Hobby landed in a nearby tree. I was just lining the shot up, when a cuckoo landed right next to it! Not something you see every day :-)

  1. Very nice--do you have the colour shot as well?
