  1. I have managed to come past a few times on my way North and we have always seen harriers and particularly like the Tarras valley. can someone please tell me though, where is harrier corner?
    It seems to be one of the few places I can see harriers regularly.
    The demise of the project makes me afraid for the hen harriers at Langholm. I'm hoping for the best, but fear the worst.

  2. Alex can you email me at cat@langholminitiative.co.uk? thanks C
