  1. From memory Terry, I think these green wing tagged birds
    may have originated from Norfolk?

  2. Indeed. I recall that the last green wing tagged Marsh Harrier to be seen on Otmoor, was identified as having come from the Hawk and Owl Trust reserve at Sculthorpe Moor in Norfolk.

  3. It would be good if someone manages to clock the number on the tag if it's seen again.
