Dreadful news. Short-eared owls are a nationally declining species. This bird was found shot dead on a grouse moor near Selset reservoir, Middleton-in-Teesdale. Just over 1K from where these two owls were also found shot in 2015: ww2.rspb.org.uk/our-work/rsp… Any info call police: 101
24 hours after sharing an appeal for information about a missing hen harrier, we find ourselves sharing further sad news. @DurhamPolice have confirmed a short-eared owl was shot in the #NorthPenninesAONB Read more northpennines.org.uk/confirm… @RSPBEngland

"Reiver’s tag was transmitting regularly and as expected, with no sign of malfunction, until it stopped suddenly on 17 September 2021. Her tag’s last fix came from Ninebanks, an area dominated by driven grouse moors in Northumberland." community.rspb.org.uk/ourwor…

Hen harriers seem to be doing just fine on the unkeepered Langholm moor 🙂 despite spurious contrary predictions by driven grouse shooting apologists. But when Langholm’s harriers fly to keepered grouse moors, they die. ‘Twas ever thus #RememberAnnie

Breaking! Walshaw Moor, above Hebden Bridge, is being investigated by the habitats watchdog @NaturalEngland over potential illegal burning on blanket bog. It follows complaints by Wild Moors and @Natures_Voice relating to burning performed over three days in the past week.
