A hen harrier chick, ringed on Snake Pass this year, has gone missing over a grouse moor area in Peak District.
It’s great news that hen harriers have returned to breed successfully in the Peak District for the first time in 3 years with 4 chicks fledging from their moorland nest.
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is strongly opposed to any human interference in the nesting of hen harriers, one of England’s rarest nesting birds.
