Comment on Joy at new English hen harrier chicks is tempered by spectre of illegal killling

Aware you have thanked some of them, but wished to register thanks to private, often unfunded input, from diverse rural communities working for hen harriers across the UK – incl on the Hen Harrier Action Plan.

Cathleen. Good stuff. Though please don’t forget to thank private landowners, farmers, land managers, gamekeepers, foresters et al who are working, often behind the scenes, on keeping sites secure, controlling predators, managing other recreation users and land use operations (harvest, tree felling) etc.Especially as long term conservation can only succeed through collaborative partnership efforts.
