Well a very warm welcome to the 2009 Bowland Hen Harrier Project Blog. In partnership with RSPB, Natural England and United Utilities, Lancashire County Councils Countryside Service is playing host to the Bowland Hen Harrier Project at the Bowland Visitor Centre, Beacon Fell.
Continuous footage of a Hen Harrier nest in the Bowland Fells can be viewed seven days a week at the Visitor Centre on Beacon Fell Country Park near Preston.
Volunteers and staff from the Lancashire Countryside Service will be available every day from 10am – 4pm to talk to visitors about what the birds are doing and the Hen Harrier project in Bowland.
Viewing is possible 10.00 am to 5.00pm every day, the Bowland café is also open for drinks and light snacks.
The unedited footage comes from a hidden camera which will be shown on the big screen at the Bowland Visitor Centre. Viewing starts on Monday 25th May and will run until the young have left the nest around the end of June.
Daily updates on the bird and her chicks progress will be posted on our blog - so save us to your favourites list.
We look forward to seeing you at Beacon Fell where you will enjoy unique footage of this magnificent and rare bird.
