Bad bird news, British and Australian

Dear Kitty. Some blog

Unfortunately, today not just good bird news from Britain.

This video is about hen harriers in Scotland.

From Wildlife Extra:

Just 1 pair of Hen harriers nesting in England

The future of England’s most threatened birds of prey hangs in the balance

May 2012. The future for England’s most threatened bird of prey – the hen harrier – is looking perilous, as the species teeters on the brink of extinction as a breeding bird.

No nests in Bowland

Early reports indicate that only one pair is showing signs of nesting in England. If this situation continues it will be the worst year for hen harriers since they recolonised England, following extinction in the late Nineteenth Century. Worryingly, there are currently no birds attempting to nest in the Bowland Fells, Lancashire – the bird’s only stronghold in England in recent decades.
