Much will be revealed at the Birders Against Wildlife Crime Conference in Buxton on the first day of spring (it’s full – no places left).
BAWC will be organising a Hen Harrier Day event in England this year – many thanks to them. It’s an attempt to ensure sunny weather – I failed badly last year.
But there will be a range of social media activities with which you can join in.
And this book, Inglorious, is a part, my part, of the ongoing campaign to ban driven grouse shooting. No it wasn’t a one-year wonder – the campaign goes on.
By the time we get to Hen Harrier day 2015, there will be a new government – what will be their position on field sports in general and grouse shooting in particular, I wonder? The Greens, who may not be a majority party, are against field sports and Labour seems to have timidly opted for a review of all shooting. A review would be interesting and valuable. You wonder why Labour hasn’t done its own review in the last five years so that it knows what it wants to do – a bit inept I’d say. Maybe they were waiting for my book?
