It Is Hen Harrier Day 2019 Sunday 11 August Be There Lots Of Good News

HH Day wet us

The first, very, very wet Hen Harrier Day great to report things have got better!

When we stood in the torrential rain at the very first Hen Harrier Day we were taking a stand for our "protected" birds, especially the Hen Harrier which was all but extinct in England due solely to illegal persecution associated with Driven Grouse Shooting. Would it do any good? We didn't know but we were going to try! Through many peoples determination and commitment we are seeing the tide turn and it is wonderful to see that if good people stand up they can stop bad things happening. There is good news to share at this years Hen Harrier Day come along and be part of it, if you can't be there use your voice to spread the word, tell everyone about the plight of our Hen Harriers, use social media to share the news both good and bad. If you see a news story about yet another Hen Harrier or other so called protected species being illegally killed don't turn away, shout about it! Through social media we have a voice that is listened to and by coming to Hen Harrier Day we will have a bigger voice. We are now seeing real change and I believe this change is driven by public opinion, before, the killings were Driven Grouse Shootings dirty secrets now light is being shone on these criminals and the Shooting Industry is finally waking up to the fact and saying it must end!

The good news will only continue, and grow, if we all keep shouting about the criminals that kill our protected birds. Let us be crystal clear here we are asking for the law of this land to be upheld surely not a lot to ask in 2019? Hen Harrier Day be there.

Good news about Hen Harriers in 2019....

More young Hen Harriers left their nests in England this year than for many, many years. Huge thanks to all that helped make this possible. Now the Shooting Industry has to ensure their safety by weeding out the criminals in their ranks.

This was published in the latest issue of Country Life Magazine, jaw-dropping common sense, this would never have happend without Hen Harrier Day and all those that support it.

Hen Harrier Day is a wonderful friendly event and a super chance to meet like-minded folks that really care about our wildlife and will stand up for it! We are winning and with your help will win.
