Making the Most of Moorlands: Update


A fantastic morning on the moor

Saturday 9th April 2016

We enjoyed another fantastic watch on Saturday morning at Harrier Corner. Regular views of both male and female harriers were enjoyed by observers from the Langholm area as well as those from Newcastle, Sunderland, Merseyside, Appleby, Geltsdale and an RSPB trip from Glasgow. Red Kite, mating merlin, brown hare and roe deer also put in an appearance alongside Raven, Kestrel and Buzzard. We were even treated to some skydancing just before noon. The weather was unusually kind again and enjoyed by both the bird watchers and birds with Stonechat, Curlew and Red Grouse also displaying. Thanks to everyone who came along, it was a cracking morning!


The RSPB Glasgow Local Group has posted a trip report including their visit to Langholm here:
