Hen Harrier Day 2014

Hen-Harrier-Day-300pxThe first Hen Harrier Day was held on Sunday 10 August 2014.

Hen Harrier Day 2014 was an opportunity for people to express their outrage at the illegal killing of the protected Hen Harrier by grouse moor interests.  Science says there should be 300+ pairs of Hen Harrier nesting in England – 2014 has seen just three pairs.

Hen Harrier Day 20134 was organised by Birders against Wildlife Crime, the Northwest Raptor Protection Group and Mark Avery.

Hen Harrier Day 2014 was supported by: the RSPB, the Wildlife Trusts, the National Trust, the Hawk and Owl Trust, the League Against Cruel Sports, the Peak District National Park, Birdwatch magazine, Rare Bird Alert, Welsh Ornithological Society and Quaker Concern for Animals.

Four events occurred where people gathered together in Lancashire (the Forest of Bowland), Northumberland (South Tyne Trail at Lambley), Radipole RSPB reserve in Dorset and the Peak District (see below).

Five hundred and seventy people gathered in the Peak District to listen to Chris Packham and Mark Avery and to raise their voices against the illegal killing of Hen Harriers in our hills.  We were, on that day, the ‘Sodden 570’.
