The conflict between driven grouse shooting and Hen Harriers like Henry (or rather, not very like Henry) is a real one. Hen Harriers eat enough grouse seriously to reduce grouse bags when they are shot for fun. Grouse shooting interests illegally kill enough Hen Harriers in the UK to reduce their population to c6-800 pairs rather than the 2,600 pairs that there should be. You must choose. Do you want more natural uplands which are better at reducing flood risk, storing carbon and have a full range of upland wildlife or do you want the current knackered uplands to remain?
If you want less flooding, more carbon storage, better water quality, more blanket bogs, less wildlife crime and a restoration of predator populations then please sign this e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting.
