Hands off our Hen Harriers: Picnic at Grimwith Reservoir, Yorkshire Dales National Park

HandOffRed2
We’re told that the picnic/stroll/chat about the lack of Hen Harriers in England this year – ‘a tiny handful’ (RSPB) – will be held at Grimwith Reservoir car park at midday on Saturday (this Saturday! Saturday 25 June).
It will be nice to meet up with many friends and register our anger at the lack of Hen Harriers in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and elsewhere in the English uplands, and in many parts of the UK uplands.
Grimwith Reservoir car park is large and ideally placed for a stroll around the reservoir to take a look at the grouse butts set into the wall on the far side and the line of butts at the eastern end of the reservoir.  There is a clear view (if the weather is OK – surely it will be) across the characteristic chequerboard-pattern of burned heather patches.
Grimwith Reservoir is on the western side of OS Explorer map 298, Nidderdale, at 063641.
See you there perhaps?

    Sorry not to be with you on this as we will be on holiday in Northumberlandt. The reservoir is just outside the western edge of our club recording area of Nidderdale AONB and the surrounding estate is not a happy place for raptors of any sort. Hope you get loads of support on the day we will be on the lookout for any reports.

      So much for MOVING FORWARD ! As the Previous Letters PROVE – With the DE-REGULATION of ‘PUBLIC Transport’
      Into PRIVATE CONSORTIUMS – More PEOPLE than ever are PREVENTED from attending these shows DUE to the OVERALL, DRASTIC, UNNECESSARY COUNTRYWIDE DECREASES IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE U.K.
      Your Request Forms would be FULLER,
      Through the NUMBERS of PEOPLE who are Interested in SIGNING to PREVENT the WHOLESALE SLAUGHTERING OF MANY RAPTORS,
      WHICH Would make the Countryside and Wildlife Havens VERMIN-FREE & WITHOUT the need for PESTICIDES,
      RODENTICIDES (&/or CYANIDE, I.e. Being used to KILL MOLES) Because if NATURE was LEFT ALONE, The LAND, WATERWAYS Etc WOULD NOT BE CONTAMINATED BY TOXIC CHEMICALS, POISONOUS SUBSTANCES (E.g. LEAD-SHOT) Etc.
