    The Hen Harrier population will never recover in England until more severe penalties and licensing of grouse moors are introduced. I hope the National Trust National Parks and Water Utility Companies who own large amounts of grouse moors take a firm stance and stand up and put a stop to driven grouse shooting on their land. Hopefully we will then see a recovery in Hen Harrier and other birds of prey that are still persecuted in our uplands in the name of sport!,

  • https://www.thepetitionsite.com/en-gb/takeaction/880/711/119/ click on the link to sign and share petition,thanks.

    Scotland has already introduced the Vicarious Liability Law which makes the landowner held responsible for any dead birds of prey that may be found on his/her land. Scotland also as the Licensing Law for grouse shooting which the owner of the land as taken off them by law if they are held responsible for any dead birds of prey on their land.They can no longer have grouse shooting on that grouse moor estate.

    Disappointingly, England has not seen fit to follow Scotland’s example, and under the Tory rule perhaps never will! One of the reason’s signing my petition.

  • This moor was named so why not all the others where tagged harriers have gone missing?? Time to spill the beans Stephen Murphy. You don’t have to even sign your name as so many staff from Natural England already know the names of the estates especially the ones with the most kills like the one in Cumbria!
