Hen Harrier SPA Habitat Map Viewer published

Date Released: Wednesday, May 13, 2015

In 2014 a Hen Harrier Habitat Mapping Project focusing on the Hen Harrier SPAs and based on remote sensing techniques was undertaken by the National Parks and Wildlife Service. This produced a contemporary geospatially digitised habitat map for the six SPAs which has been now published through an online map viewer.

Habitat categories that broadly correspond to the Fossitt Classification system distinguish habitats of ecological relevance to Hen Harrier.  For more information please read the associated NPWS Irish Wildlife Manual no. 83.
