Eurasian Marsh-Harrier in Oxford


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I thought I would try to breathe a little life into this section of the forum.  I was just reviewing a video I took on 6/22/16 and noticed a bird calling in the background that I believe is a Eurasian Marsh-Harrier.  However, there were lots of Black-headed Gulls around, juveniles of which have a variable begging call somewhat similar to the harrier's call.  I thought I would get some opinions on whether my ID is definitive!

Included are my recording, similar harrier recordings from Macaulay, a begging gull from Xeno-canto, and Macaulay-format spectrograms for the first and last of these.
