Hen Harrier

Having left their shores on 1 April, Sorrel has broken a few hearts in Ireland. The hope was that she would find a mate and stay to raise her second brood, but it seems she has other ideas. Since landing in Ireland on 29 October 2018 she had conducted an extensive tour of roost sites, and without the cooperation, assistance and field work of dedicated individuals from a wide range of raptor and Hen Harrier groups/organisations, and a number of private roost watchers, we wouldn’t have gained anywhere near the depth of insight into her visit to The Emerald Isle that we achieved. This was excellent team work across the length and breadth of Ireland, which was extremely gratifying to be involved with, particularly in these difficult times for Hen Harriers in the round.  Currently Sorrel appears to be exploring the Western Isles of Scotland and we have a suspicion she may be working her way up the Scottish Highland Region once again. However, with this bird there’s no telling; she’s just as likely to turn tail and head back across the water. As ever, we will continue to monitor Sorrel’s progress and report via this news page as and when it is considered appropriate.
