Hen Harrier

298.00

A half-size male Hen Harrier hand-crocheted from wool, alpaca, mohair and silk, with pure carded British Shetland lambswool filling and needle-felted detailing around his eyes. He is mounted on a section of hand sanded and waxed grapevine wood and signed with a uniquely numbered metal ring on his leg, and stands 20 cm high by 24 cm from head to tail (about 7.75" x 9”).

The hen harrier is one the UK’s most beautiful - and threatened - birds of prey. They nest on the ground on upland moors, and perform a stunning acrobatic skydance in Spring to attract a mate. Unfortunately, hen harrier populations in the UK are now at a critical level from loss of habitat and illegal killing on grouse moors. 

The RSPB LIFE+ project (http://www.rspb.org.uk/henharrierlife/) and Hen Harrier Day organised by Birders Against Wildlife Crime (BAWC) (http://henharrierday.org) are two programmes involved in hen harrier protection and awareness-raising. Half the proceeds from the sale of this sculpture will be donated to these organisations to support their work.
