Hen harrier in England (IN7.8)

Introduction

The hen harrier is one of Englandís most spectacular birds of prey and it is an unforgettable sight to watch this bird floating effortlessly, low over the ground, in search of prey. Unfortunately, the opportunity to see the hen harrier on its moorland breeding haunts has become all too rare in recent years and there is now a very real danger that it will be lost as a breeding bird in England. English Nature has launched the Hen Harrier Recovery Project to monitor the remaining breeding birds, assess the factors responsible for the recent decline and help begin the process of restoring its fortunes.
