Hen Harrier Cameras go LIVE at Clyde Muirshiel

After a long wait this season the Discover Clyde Muirshiel Wildlife on Screen project has at last got live images of a 2010 hen harrier mother sitting on eggs.

Funding from LEADER supported the installation of the camera on the hen harrier nest giving visitors to the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park near Greenock, the unique opportunity to watch the hen harrier family grow from hatchlings to fledgings.

There are currently five eggs in the nest. This is much later than last year, when by this time in previous seasons the chicks were flapping their wings preparing for their first flights. 

The footage, which has been described as ‘better than Springwatch’, can be seen that the visitor centre at Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park.
