A reader of this blog was pleased to see a male Hen Harrier pictured on this Environment Agency sign on the Jubilee river (which is the flood prevention scheme near Slough – of all places). It would be possible to see a Hen Harrier near there in winter but it would be a good record.
This got Mike Coker and me wondering where is the most unlikely place that you have seen a Hen Harrier depicted? And can you send a photograph please? My own entry will appear on this blog at 18:00 this evening – another ghostly white male floating over the landscape.
Come to think of it, what is the most unlikely place that you have ever seen a live Hen Harrier? I saw a couple from my office window at the Lodge once, but more recently I would, if I could, but I can’t, nominate the Scottish grouse moor where a male Hen Harrier flew over Henry and me. Best not to mention where it was I think.
And if anyone has a photo of the hand-written sign, allegedly seen attached to the Forest of Bowland sign near Abbeystead, which said ‘Twinned with Malta’ then I’d love to see that too.
