View Full Version : Hen Harrier up-date (Yorkshire)

Tuesday 29th July 2003, 17:03
Some good news on the harrier front, three young have fledged from the Yorkshire site (two female one male) with a very strong chance (fingers tightly crossed) that four more are on the way, from a second nest. Two nests failed due to the disappearance of a polygamous male. There is still a very long way to go to bring these magnificence raptors up to their true and deserved breeding status in England but at least this is a very positive result. All the very best to all fellow raptor enthusiasts.

It's good to see another member from the north-east. I actually hail from Barnard Castle, though I live in Billingham nowadays.

See you around.

Hi Mick,
It makes a nice change to read of some success for these raptors when the raptor news in general is often of disappointment and failure all over the country. All the best to yourself too.
