These images are just stunning.
This is a brief TED Talk.
This is what I want to be doing. Photographing (and writing about) animals in such a way as to try to bridge the huge barrier of disconnect most seem to experience between us (human animals) and them (all other animals).
For the second year running, I attended the Hen Harrier event organised by Mark Avery and attended by Mark and Chris Packham. This year they were supported by the RSPB and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, and the event/demo was held at Goytsclough Quarry.
Estimated turnout numbered around 500 attendees on the day.
Here are some photos I took on the day. It certainly seemed to be even more popular than 2014’s Hen Harrier Day and that was a success! Much positive noise and determination to raise the profile of Hen Harriers and their persecution by land-owners and game-keepers in and around the Peak District and across the UK.
