On Saturday 11th August RSPB Rainham Marshes is hosting an event organized by Birders Against Wildlife Crime to mark Hen Harrier Day 2018 – to celebrate hen harriers and publicise their plight.

We'd like to invite you to join us for this rally, which will include speakers and activities suitable for all, including for families! Speakers confirmed so far include David Lindo (The Urban Birder) and RSPB Director of Conservation Martin Harper. All money raised goes to Birders Against Wildlife Crime and they'll be giving an update about their raptor satellite tagging project too.

We're anticipating a busy day and are urging people to use public transport – the reserve is just a ten minute walk from Purfleet station on the C2C line. Additional car parking is also available in Purfleet at the public car park just west of the train station.

The car park will open at 8am, and the main rally with speeches is set to start at 11 am. The speeches will take place in the marquee field near the Marshland Discovery Zone so leave yourself 15 minute or so to wander down.

Join us in saying ‘We want our Hen Harriers back’! Watch this space and @HHDayLondon for more updates. Look forward to seeing you there!
