Hen Harriers are killed illegally by game shooting interests to protect Red Grouse until the grouse can be shot for ‘sport’. There should be over 300 pairs of Hen Harriers in the English uplands but last year there were just two pairs. The Peak District should have several pairs of this beautiful bird but most years there are none.
To show your support for the Hen Harrier, and your dismay at their current dire status, why not attend Hen Harrier Day on 10 August this year at a moor near you.
Join me in the Peak District on 10 August for a peaceful protest on behalf of the Hen Harrier.
Let me know you intend to attend Hen Harrier Day in the Peak District on 10 August 2014 (that’s two days before the Red Grouse shooting season starts).
