Harriers, Peregrine and Short-eared Owl Visit Reserve
New species were spotted in 2007 over Fylingdales Moor, which the Trust is managing as a conservation area. They include harriers, peregrine and short-eared owl, as well as grasshopper warbler and greenshank.
“We are deeply indebted to the volunteers who give their time and expertise in order that we can monitor and improve the biodiversity of the moor,” said Trust chairman Professor John Edwards, who co-ordinates a series of wildlife surveys which began in 2005.
“Last year was notable for the financial support that we received from outside organisations.
“We are also grateful for scientific, technical and financial backing from the North York Moors National Park Authority and Natural England, and to Sir Fred Strickland-Constable and the Strickland Estate for supporting this wonderful conservation initiative.”
