As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

THREATENED BIRD SPECIES: Keep a look out for Hen Harriers

Birdwatch News Archive

Posted on: 12 Mar 2014
The RSPB is asking people who spend time in the uplands of Cumbria to keep their eyes peeled for Hen Harrier, England’s most threatened bird of prey.

The conservation charity has relaunched its Hen Harrier Hotline, now in its seventh year, in the hope of discovering where these birds are potentially breeding. The uplands of Northern England has the ecological potential to hold at least 320 pairs of breeding Hen Harriers, but last year not a single chick was raised in the whole of England.
