Marsh Harrier - O`tooles lough

 I was cruising back toward Corofin , I hung out around O`tooles lough watching the the Fieldfares and Wigeon flocks around the Marsh . I walked further along the road chasing a Redpoll to a gate and caught sight of a male Marsh Harrier  but it was always downlight moving low beneath the tree line as it moved way at any height and it was mobbed by Crows.

 Through the binoculars it seemed to have a pale head and silvery parts through the upperwing and tail  as shown in photo 2 , but overall a dark bird.
