Project sees highest number of fledged Hen Harriers

"As part of efforts to conserve Hen Harriers, 21 estates across Scotland have now joined the Heads Up for Harriers project in 2017.

This year has seen a bumper number of 37 young successfully fledging from nests located on 7 of the 21 participating estates. This is the highest number of fledged birds ever for the Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime Scotland (PAW) Scotland project, led by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH).

A number of Hen Harrier roosts have vanished from our area and the Eastern side of the Dales as you say just so a few can play with their guns.
