10 Sep 2014 “Seven years into the Langholm Moor Demonstration Project”, with Sonja Ludwig
This partnership project aims to reconcile grouse moor and raptor conservation interests with the core objective of re-establishing Langholm Moor as a driven grouse moor while maintaining a viable population of Hen Harriers under SPA guidelines. Started in 2008, the 10-year project is now in its seventh year, and this talk will give an overview over employed management tools, scientific monitoring, and where the project is in respect of its targets.
