Hen Harrier at Coward's Marsh

On January 7th 2012, a male Hen Harrier was seen from Coward's Marsh, a site in the Lower Avon Valley outside of the recognised CHOG recording area, but only by a kilometre or so. From then on, the bird was seen regularly throughout January and, uncharacteristically for the species, seemed to spend pretty much all day in the same small area. On 11th January, a bird was seen high over Stanpit that could well have been this individual.
