Rare bird breeds in Cornish reserve

Words by Abi Scaife

A rare bird has begun breeding again in Cornwall.

Tell me more!

The Cornwall Bird Watching and Preservation Society (CBWPS) has confirmed that two marsh harriers, a rare bird of prey, have raised three young at the Cornish reserve.

What does this mean?

The marsh harriers were once the rarest breeding bird in the UK, though pairs have steadily increased. 

The fact that this new pair has managed to raise three young on the CBWPS reserve is an amazing sign for the species!
