Hen Harrier Nest Failures – Peak District National Park

Disappointingly we have to report that due to the sudden disappearance of two male Hen Harriers. Two active Hen Harrier nests in the Upper Derwent Valley area of the Peak District National Park, (each containing five eggs), have been abandoned.Whilst there is no direct evidence linking a crime we are closely liaising with the National Trust, the Police and the NWCU along with other partner agencies to ascertain the fate of the birds.
