Harrier sightings

It is nice to be able to offer some good news about the Langholm Harriers and today I can. Firstly, one of the wing-tagged birds (a cock bird) from 2010 was spotted near Moniaive (North west of Dumfries) recently. This is fantastic news, as records of wing tagged birds are few and far between.

Barry, the satellite tagged bird from the 2012 nest has been giving us readings from various locations in the Durham hills over the last few weeks ( I am awaiting latest map data). On the 4th October  Barry was seen hunting on moorland / woodland edge.

No news yet on Blae's postmortem results.
