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.
