Readers of this blog will be familiar with the ongoing issue of raptor persecution, particularly that involving Hen Harriers and the issue of upland management for driven grouse shooting.
We are informed that there is to be a ‘picnic’ next Saturday, 25th June 2016 in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is being billed as a Hen Harrier rally to mark this year’s virtual absence of nesting Hen Harriers from the English uplands.
The details will be released on Wednesday this week, for details visit Standing up for nature via http://markavery.info/blog/ and or Raptor Persecution UK via https://raptorpersecutionscotland.wordpress.com/
