  7. I'm sure I sighted a Hen Harrier in the North Leitrim area, she has a particular shrill that makes beam with joy. I managed to get a photograph from last year when she flew into the garden. She's been a fond regular for the last couple of years. I would really to like to get the correct identification as I initially thought she was a kestrel but after drawing the hen harrier (pencil on paper) recently and checking out more photographs I think it is... It would be great to know either. Thank you for your blog. Kathy
