Natural England have announced that it is set to undergo the first hen harrier brood management trial, following the conditions of the licence being met. We welcome this news and hope it can deliver a positive outcome for hen harrier recovery. Brood management is one of six pragmatic steps in Defra’s hen harrier action plan, with the intention of bringing conservation organisations together with one common goal. As part of that group, we welcome all efforts to bring about the recovery of our hen harriers.

50% of moorland in the UK is keepered and 50% un-keepered. How come hen harriers breed on the keepered ground (grouse moors) and not atall on the un-keepered ground. Surely the answer is obvious even to the most dogmatic cosmetic conservationist.
