Record number of hen harriers fitted with transmitters

A RECORD number of hen harrier chicks have been fitted with satellite tags this year.

More than 24 birds have been fitted with transmitters, the majority of which are in Scotland, as part of the conservation organisation RSPB’s EU-funded Hen Harrier LIFE Project.

By tracking the movements of these threatened birds of prey, the RSPB will be able to build up a clearer picture of where hen harriers go and where they are most at risk, for example from illegal persecution.
