We understand that the picnic/stroll/chat about the lack of Hen Harriers in England this year will be at Grimwith Reservoir car park at midday on Saturday (this Saturday, Saturday 25 June).
We are informed there is ample parking at the reservoir which is on the western side of OS Explorer map 298, Nidderdale, at 063641.
