General information about Hen Harrier Day 2014 
Hen Harrier Day 2014 is Sunday 10 August.
Hen Harrier Day 2014 is 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 – this year has seen just three pairs.
Hen Harrier Day 2014 is 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.
There are three events planned for Hen Harrier Day where people can gather together in Lancashire (the Forest of Bowland), Northumberland (South Tyne Trail at Lambley) and the Peak District (event full).


It is easy to sit up and take notice,
What is difficult is getting up and taking action.
