Since breeding in the Scottish Highland Region and successfully fledging her brood, the H&OT-tagged Hen Harrier, ‘Sorrel’ has been one very busy bird. Initially she flew south to within 50 metres of the nest site from which she herself fledged, before heading off to spend a number of weeks in the area in which she overwintered last year. However, in the past couple of weeks she has headed to Northern Ireland via the Isle of Man where she overnighted before moving on. We will continue to monitor Sorrel’s progress and report via this news page as and when it is considered appropriate.
