Raptor Fractions

“The number of breeding pairs of hen harriers in England so far this year ranges between 0 and 1.” (https://raptorpersecutionscotland.wordpress.com/2016/06/06/how-many-hen-harriers-breeding-in-england-this-year/)

0.5 of a breeding pair? Just out of interest, is it hermaphrodite?

“Two more red kites have been confirmed by Scottish Government testing to have been illegally killed in north Scotland. … It is doubtful whether either of the corpses of these birds would have been found if the satellite tags had not been in place.” (http://www.rspb.org.uk/media/releases/406182-two-more-red-kites-found-illegally-killed-in-north-scotland)

If only there was a way to track where the birds were before their deaths.
