Shameless spin from Moorland Association

It’s very touching to see Amanda Anderson trying to grab the credit for Hen Harriers nesting in Bowland for grouse moors. Yes, there are a few days shooting on the United Utilities land but, to the best of my knowledge, there were no Hen Harrier nests on the large areas of driven grouse moors in the Bowland Fells SPA which was set up to protect these birds.

Isn’t it odd that yesterday’s announcement does not quote the Moorland Association, or the owner of Abbeystead (the Duke of Westminster), or the owner of Bleasdale (Jeremy Duckworth), although not so odd when you realise that these intensive grouse moors do not hold nesting Hen Harriers despite the five pairs on adjacent land. They are so unlucky.
