Meet Henry

IMG_4629 - Copy
Meet Henry. Henry is a 6ft-tall Hen Harrier who’s very, very lonely. He’s struggling to find a mate because most of his potential girlfriends have been bumped off on grouse moors. Henry is flying around the British Isles in search of a significant other and you can follow his progress as he posts daily photographs from his travels. He’s being accompanied by several burly minders to protect him from those who’d like to shoot, trap or poison him.
Here he is visiting a grouse moor in the Derbyshire Peak District National Park.
Where will he be tomorrow? #HaveYouSeenHenry

  1. The land in this photo is degraded and abused. It is shocking that this is in a National Park.

  2. Interesting that all of a sudden, you are getting lots of 'Dislikes'. Presumably, the opposition is getting worried and starting a 'we dislike Mark Avery' campaign. Well, your shoulders are broad enough to bear this. Pity that they don't have the courage to do more than just 'dislike' you. I am sure that you would be happy to publish their objections - and reply to them! Keep up the good work!

  3. Yeah don't grouse moors look bloody terrible! Even the 'purple hills' guff reminds me of a horrible body rash. Best of luck Henry, but I think you may have to consider becoming a monk harrier.
