Langholm Walking Festival 2012
The breeze on the top of Whita felt more of a gale, albeit a warm one, so the group made their way down the far side of Whita through the bible fields towards Rashiel. We were lucky enough to get very good sightings of several waders, including Lapwing and Curlew, which have settled on the ground recently cut and re-seeded as part of the restoration work on the moor. On arrival at Rashiel the group got the opportunity to talk to Head Gamekeeper Simon Lester about the moorland management.
Caroline and Malcolm are both very experienced with working with raptors and hold relevant permits and licences for ringing barn owls.
