Hen Harrier Action - plans for 2022
Young Filmmaker Challenge
We are inviting young people aged between 12 and 18 to enter a filmmaking competition, this time on the subject of ‘Survival’. There will be three prizes, in the form of vouchers, for £500, £300 and £100 to be spent on photographic/ filmmaking equipment.
Entrants can interpret the title in a broad sense but are asked to concentrate on wildlife in the UK. Our main aim is to encourage interest in the natural world both among the entrants and the audience the film reaches.
The closing date is 31 March 2023. Full details can be found here.
Walk for Harriers
The very first Walk for Harriers took place on the traditional Hen Harrier day weekend and was a free organised walk onto a typical driven grouse moor. Talks were given by experts in their field about raptor persecution and upland reform and we also pointed out and discussed the various management techniques to maximise grouse for shooting seen along the way including muirburn and various crow and mammal traps. An enjoyable and informative day was had by all.
