Hen Harrier Day 2014

Over 500 people braved the torrential downpour to protest against Hen Harrier persecution by the grouse shooting fraternity at Derwent Reservoir today, Thanks to Mark Avery and Chris Packham for leading the event and a big "Well done!" to those brave enough, and committed enough to weather the deluge. I did wonder if my kit would survive the drenching, but somehow I managed to get some useable material.
