Dinosaur of the week: Western Marsh Harrier

marsh harrier

This Circus aeruginosus was flying over the reeds of Otmoor, an RSPB reserve. The species is facing threats like shooting and in Otmoor in particular habitat loss because some nitwits want to build another road in the area. If you’re like me not happy with this and you live in the UK or are a Brit, please consider signing this petition: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/217244 Thank you!

This male Fringilla coelebs was looking for food under the tables in a pub near Oxford. The species is mostly doing alright, apart from the subspecies on the Canary Islands which suffers from habitat loss.
