‘Serious concerns’ about Langholm hen harrier ‘Blue’

22 October 2013

Scientists tracking the dispersal movements of a young hen harrier from the Langholm Moorland Demonstration Project have expressed ‘serious concerns’ about his safety after his satellite signal unexpectedly stopped transmitting. The young male, called Blue, was one of four young harriers being tracked from Langholm this year. Project staff say the matter has now been passed on to the police. More information¬†here.
