To see these beautiful birds on the Scottish islands was truly magnificent.One of the many Highlights for us both were the first sightings of Hen Harriers, a Ringtail spooked Lapwings nesting in the Machair then decided to give us a fly pass over the picnic table while we were having lunch!! and my camera left in the car! Then 10 minutes later at another location the sky dancing Male quartered over the moor then climbed high over our heads. What a fantastic view of this brilliant bird....its quarry Meadow Pipits and Skylarks. Our first of many sightings of this beautiful iconic bird of the heathland across all the Islands, bar Skye. We want them in England. With dedicated people like yourselves it will happen we just need everyone who live and work on the moors to see them as part of the landscape. They belong there. Keep the dream alive and keep these amazing bird alive too.
