Wendy the satellite tagged Hen Harrier has been working a concentrated area on the Isle of Ulva for the last few months. Myself and a few other naturalists went out to search for Wendy recently and managed to scope a distant ringtail bird in the area where she is based. This could well have been Wendy, but we were too far away to see the antenna on her sat tag! Wendy is unfortunately now one of only 5 satellite tagged birds that is still active from last years 'Hen Harrier LI
To Coll and back!
Amazing Hen Harrier science with this female bird that was satellite tagged in Argyll and Bute this summer.
'Wendy' is currently settled on the Isle of Ulva and recently popped over to Coll and back in October!

Holly, Aged 8, says we need to protect our wildlife because some animals are in danger and they need to be treated nicely. If we don't treat them nicely it would be a sad life. Sophie, aged 5, says we need to protect our wildlife because baddies might kill them! #NatureScotland #EwanMiles #IsleofMull #MullWildlifeTours #MullHenHarrierDay
