A good week for the friends of the Hen Harrier

It’s difficult to keep up – there’s so much going on:


1408 p001 cover_with comp v2.inddSevern Trent say ‘yes’ to Hen Harrier Day in Peak District.

Hen Harrier Day in Peak District reaches capacity – any more attendees will jam the car parks…

August Birdwatch has ‘Stop killing our Harriers’ on cover.

M&S shelve plans to sell Red Grouse because of fears of consumer boycott – big piece in Friday’s Times and Daily Mail online and BBC.

RSPB spells it out to pro-shooting groups on lack of agreement on ‘joint’ plan for Hen Harriers – grouse shooting must do better (and see comments on Martin’s blog – many more than usual not surprisingly).

E-petition to ban driven grouse shooting passes 9200 signatures – will we get to 10,000 by the Inglorious 12th?  Or maybe even by Hen Harrier Day? It’s looking possible although not certain.

Sunday Times publishes article on grouse shooting which mentions Hen Harrier Day protests – because it has to this year – and quotes Chris Packham.

Hen Harrier Day ‘thunderclap’ (a coordinated sending out of social media messages on Twitter, Facebook and tumblr) passes 600,000 recipients – sign up here.
