Ring tail Harrier 5

Hen Harrier Sorrel

So, having left Ireland on 1 April and appearing to be working her way up through the Western Isles, Sorrel has once again arrived in the Scottish Highlands Region just in time for the sky-dancing and breeding season.  Due to her tag’s pre-set charge/transmit cycle, and a consequent recharging dead-data patch, we are unsighted on whether or not Sorrel arrived after a quick visit to her natal area in the Scottish Borders as she did last year.  However, logic dictates that as she was heading up the west coast she went direct; we’ll never know.  Interestingly, last year [as a singleton we assume] on 15 April she headed to the extreme north of Scotland before immediately doubling back and settling in the Highlands on 18 April.  This year [again, assumed to be as a singleton] she has reached the Highlands area on 11 April; an absolutely amazing creature.  Now, as current practice dictates, for the ‘Ts and Cs’: We have the support of reliable and committed roost and nest watchers on the ground in the area over which Sorrel is currently ranging, so as ever we will continue to monitor Sorrel’s progress and report via this news page as and when it is considered appropriate.  Please be patient with us during this extremely important time of the year for this species.
