:ymapplause: :ymapplause: Well I think they are brill!!!! especially the hobby.

You would not believe how long I have been trying to get a decent photo of a marsh harrier, we have several pairs up here in Lincolnshire but they really don't like coming close :)) :))

And the only hobby I've seen is the one I got to fly when I worked at a bird of prey centre many years ago now.
