Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales recording area covers the central Pennine block from the southern boundary between Skipton, Harrogate and Otley, north to the Durham county boundary, and west to the Cumbria and Lancashire county boundaries.

Whilst there is no formal raptor study group covering the Yorkshire Dales some raptor monitoring work, notably for peregrine and breeding raven, is coordinated by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.  In addition, the Authority works with NERF, RSPB and Natural England to assist with hen harrier survey and monitoring work within the national park.
