Why don’t you see many birds of prey on some grouse moors? Because on some estates, traps are used in an illegal way to kill falcons, eagles and harriers which are protected by law.
Damaging practices used to increase yields on grouse moors may have a direct economic impact on us even if we’ve never set eyes a red grouse.
How does driven grouse shooting work? Chris explains how the landscape has to be intensively managed – burned, drained and all predators removed.
Chris calls for Marks & Spencer and Iceland not to stock red grouse. He also cites Dr Mark Avery’s investigations into lead levels many times higher than that permitted in beef, pork or chicken.

An incredibly inspiring and in-depth interview by Charlie Moores covering not only Hen Harrier Day but also Chris’s sense of injustice at wildlife crime.
Chris will be at Hen Harrier Day 2015 along with Jeff Knott, Dr Mark Avery and the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust. This year’s location is the Goyt Valley, Derbyshire. Expect some surprises.
