Hen Harrier Days celebrate one of the UK’s most beautiful, charismatic – and now rare – birds. They are also an occasion to raise our voices against the main reason for that rarity – illegal persecution. They are a symbol also for wider problems in our uplands.

Our aim is to engage a wide audience with our concerns. So our brilliant online event will have lots about the hen harrier and its conservation but much more too. There will be fantastic new film of the birds, song, science, poetry, art, cartoons, children's stories and poems, young naturalists' videos and much more. Keep up to date here:

Hen Harrier Days are community days of action, an opportunity for all of us to press for an end to wildlife crime and the wider abuse of our uplands. Out of the adversity of Covid-19, the online event is adding great new scope to reach and engage more people in more communities with these issues: so do help spead the word.
