Marsh Harriers

During our holiday in Suffolk, we visited a large amount of nature reserves and marshland. Almost every time we visited one of these places, we would see Marsh Harriers. We also saw them very close to the cottage we were staying in at the time, and would sometimes hear a pair calling.
Since we only really saw these birds as distant flying blobs, I don't really have any award-winning photos. However, the ones I do have give a vague idea of what the bird looks like from below.
The first picture is a male, as you can tell from the white patches on the underside of his wings.
The second pictures is a female. The female is a much darker bird, but with a pale forehead.
