Ardington - Harrier

On the way to Wantage this afternoon and a Hen Harrier (ringtail) was hunting the fields north of the A417 between West Hendred and Ardington. Could only stop briefly as it is a busy road.
Maybe the same bird as Brian Wyatt had near Steventon?

It put up plenty of birds, c200 Lapwing, many Gulls and Corvids and c50 Linnet.

Some local Cholsey news of a Chiffchaff calling along the Wallingford rd and a two Grey Wagtail with one in song at Winterbrook. Amazing what a bit of sunshine can do.

Thanks to Michael Pocock for the info.
