About

They fly with wings held in a shallow 'V', gliding low in search of food, which mainly consists of meadow pipits and voles.

They move to moorland breeding areas from late March and stay there until August and September. Outside the breeding season, they are more widespread and visit the coast and crofting areas.

View the moorland from a good vantage point but do not get too close to any birds you see.
