This year's Hen Harrier Day, organised for a third consecutive year by the North West Raptor Group, will begin at 10.30 in the morning on the village green at Dunsop Bridge, near Clitheroe in the Forest of Bowland on SUNDAY 7 August.
Due to popular demand this year's event will culminate in the early afternoon (from 1pm) with a visit to nearby grouse butts where we will all enjoy a picnic in a wonderful scenic moorland venue. Please bring along your own lunch and something non alcoholic to drink for yourself or your Group.

Unfortunately there will be no views of wild Hen Harriers or Peregrines on this occasion, as both species have been persecuted in Bowland this year to extinction. 2016 is the first year since the second world war that both species have been absent from the Forest of Bowland in the same year.
NO MINI BUS THIS YEAR, BUT SOME OF US ARE GOING BY CAR.
ANYONE JOINING US?
