Back in June we blogged about a ‘Scarey Man Birdscarer’ that had been filmed on a grouse moor in the Angus Glens (see here).
Here’s another one, filmed approximately a mile away from the first one, also in June. (Thanks to the contributor who sent these videos).
And just in case these weren’t enough to scare off any prospecting hen harriers (or any other ground-nesting birds for that matter), here’s another set of banger ropes found hanging on a gatepost on the same estate. We’ve blogged about how these work here.
It’s easy to see why hen harriers haven’t nested on grouse moors in the Angus Glens since 2006.
Meanwhile, the Angus Glens Moorland Group has been playing host to some visiting MSPs…more on that shortly…
