Migration of the Marsh Harrier over Malta

Marsh Harrier - Natalino Fenech

The Marsh Harrier is the most numerous bird of prey during the autumn migration through the Maltese Islands. They start to arrive at around mid-August and continue making their way till mid-October, sometimes even late October.

The peak is normally reached during September. This medium sized bird of prey normally hunts small mammals, insects and also other birds even during migration.
