Karen, go to the site guide and look up Sleddale, Ted Parker has done a comprehensive article on the area, I'm sure he will help you if you need to know more.

Re: Sleddale. Been there on several occasions in the car and even cycled up there this morning on my mountain bike in the hope of seeing one of the birds of prey - nothing again! I realise these things are very hit and miss, but any help as to where I should look would be great. Do people just park up on the narrow road and and simply scan the skies or walk over to the wooded area? Thanks.

On a weekend trip to a village south of Harrowgate I saw 3 Buzzards circling over a wooded area near the road side. On the way back I saw a Red Kite soaring around a wooded bit of farm land wing to wing with a Buzzard.
