Skydancing action in the skies above Langholm moor

What an antidote to three months of miserable weather.. skydancing harriers.. !!
A couple of hours away from the funding paperwork to enjoy the moor in the sunshine today produced superb views of both male and female Harriers and a sprinkling of Merlin. 

many thanks to John Wright for these images
The display of the male was tentative and not up to the full on skydancing we can expect to see in the coming weeks but still sent a shiver down my spine. What a bird!
Just as I left I was lucky enough to get close views of a male harrier hunting and catching a vole.
I'd like to give a great big welcome to the seasonal RSPB staff joining the LMDP this year, Kirsty Hazelwood and Anna McWilliam, looking forward to working with you.
