The Western Marsh Harrier is a large harrier and a bird of prey. This species is the largest of the harriers and has broad, rounded wings. It is also known as the Eurasian Marsh Harrier. They are recognised as harriers by their long, narrow tails, long legs and wings held in a ‘V’ in flight. It flies with 4 to 5 wing beats, and then it soars at very low altitude, above the aquatic marsh and shore vegetation.
