I was recently delighted to be invited to record a podcast about hen harriers with campaign group, Birders Against Wildlife Crime (BAWC), as part of their series of podcasts leading up to Hen Harrier Day.
If you've not come across them before, BAWC are a group definitely worth checking out - concerned, knowledgeable birders promoting awareness, and appropriate recording and reporting of wildlife crimes. Have a look at their brilliant website here and I definitely recommend having a read of their FAQ for a fuller explanation of what they're all about.
BAWC are the instigators of Hen Harrier Day and alongside Mark Avery in the Peak District and the North West Raptor Group in the Forest of Bowland, will be running a Hen Harrier event in Northumberland on August 10th. More information on all three events can be found on their website here.
To listen to me describing the beauty of a skydancing hen harrier in full flight or indeed any of the other excellent podcasts, simply visit their soundcloud page here or the podcast page of their website here.
I'll be at the Hen Harrier Day in the Peak District - hope to see you there!
