Australasian Harrier .. Hawk


Circus approximans

There are a few hawks (the local name) around the village and Ulva Island, and we see them regularly on patrol. While on Ulva a few years ago I noticed that all the bird song just went quiet, we were in a small clearing, and looking up, there was a hawk drifting past. I’ve also seen one fishing in Little Glory Bay, maybe 200 metres from shore. Not something I knew they did. But mainly they are a bird of open or at least semi open country.

Size 600 mm
