Was this a green wing tag? Could be another Marsh Harrier, though we have Hen Harriers around as well.

Yes it was a green wing tag,I thought it was more grey than the one in picture,so they dont actually belong to any one(sorry my question mark on my computer is not working).

There are more Buzzards than soft Joe round the Wirral these days . A visitor was going on about them and pointing them out all the time - Wirralians of course dont see them as at all unusual . When I visited her in mid Wales, I was doing the same sort of thing-- pointing excitedly at the numerous Red Kites which seemed much more exciting as Ive rarely seen them and their forked tails round here.
