Wing Tagging Marsh Harriers Circus Aeruginosus in Norfolk
The Project aims
are that sightings of wing tagged individuals would
provide information on movement and hopefully answer some of the
1. Where do these birds disperse to once they are independent of their adults?
2. Are they a long distant migrant, travelling into Europe and beyond, or do they stay in the local area?
3. Once mature, do they return to their natal area to breed, or do they breed at completely different sites chosen randomly?
4. Once they start to breed, do they breed in the same habitat in which they were raised i.e. reed-beds, Oil seed rape, other crops etc?
The Project has had some staggering and unexpected results.
