Statement on hen harrier, Calluna

Scottish Land & Estates has issued the following statement regarding a Hen Harrier which is reported to have gone missing in north Deeside.

David Johnstone, chairman of Scottish Land & Estates, said:“Scottish Land & Estates members who manage land in north Deeside wholeheartedly join this appeal for information.

“Estates in the area have welcomed a number of hen harriers to the area during August and only today one moor reported three harriers.  Local land managers reject the inference that the loss of signal from this tag is connected to grouse moor management and are now offering every assistance in searching the area where the last transmission was recorded. They are dismayed that they were not informed earlier that the tag had stopped transmitting nearly three weeks ago as this would have assisted the search. All members of the Partnership Against Wildlife Crime, including ourselves, agree that this is the recommended way of dealing with such incidents.”
