The March 2020 Newsletter, our first, introduced the Hen Harrier Day website and the charity Hen Harrier Action. It gave news of many local Hen Harrier Days being planned but, though acknowledging the impact of the forthcoming pandemic, proved far too optimistic about that, reckoning that August events would still be OK. Even so, it gave the first news of our planning for an online event. We were so fortunate that this was proposed so early and that we quickly got on with the planning and organising. The newsletter also had items on ‘controlled’ heather burning going out of control, the judicial review of Natural England’s morally and scientifically dubious ‘Hen Harrier Action Plan’ and about some arrests related to wildlife crime.
