MONTAGU'S HARRIERS still in area

Both adult male and ringtail MONTAGU'S HARRIERS are still being seen in the Deadman Hill area, about 5 miles east of Royston. It is almost certain that they are nesting in the area but despite exhaustive searching, the location has not been found this year.

It has been a good year for this species in the Midlands, where in early June, I located three separate nests within a 7-mile radius of farmland. With young birds fledging in the next three weeks, sightings should increase and activity rise.
