Making the Most of Moorlands: Update

Guided Watch at Harrier Corner

30th April 2016

Tawny Owl sleeping in the sun

Enjoyed a great morning's watch on the moor where we were treated to fantastic views of Harriers, Merlin, two Short eared owl, Raven, Buzzard, drumming Snipe, Wheatear, displaying Curlew and a pair of Greylag geese. After the watch a walk near Rashiel turned up the first Pied Flycatcher of the season for me (a lovely singing male) and a check of some Tawny sites afforded a lovely view of an adult sleeping in the sun. Happy days! Rick
