The Cruel Death of a Rare Hen Harrier

A Sad and Shameful Day in Ireland just at the start of spring, when life is just quickening to hear on the news, that a beautiful rare hen harrier had been shot and killed.

I have been following this rare female hen harrier called Heather and her travels around Ireland, along with thousands of people worldwide on henharrierireland.blogspot.ie

Heather had been tagged with a satellite tracking device in 2013 and through this programme we were given a wonderful insight into her life. Also by this tagging programme, researchers hoped to learn more about these magnificent birds to protect them.
