Well it is reported that the poisoned shoot them although they strongly deny it. however people keep finding dead ones either poisoned or shot. Somebody plotted a map of where all the Hen Harriers were breeding and where all the game birds were being farmed and there was no overlap what so ever. ;-(

That's so sad :( There should be a better way to keep raptors from getting game farm birds!

the thing is the game farms produce around 4000000 pheasants and 6000000 grouse a year. The harriers take around 8000 a year, less than 1%. the gamers take around 70% therefore they are always on the increase. Still they feel the need to kill them ;-(
