Northern England Raptor Forum Annual Review 2019
Our CEO Liz Ballard provided the foreword to the latest Annual Review from the Northern England Raptor Forum (NERF). NERF was established in 2006 with the overall objective of providing one effective voice to represent the conservation interests of raptors, including Owls and Raven, primarily in the uplands of northern England.
NERF Chairman Steve Downing said “NERF members hold the most comprehensive record of the Bird of Prey populations and productivity in the North of England. By comparing habitat availability with the population levels it is clear that many species are supressed by persecution. Working with our friends in the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust we are beginning to see these trends reversed. By continuing our collaborative partnership I have no doubt that this positive trend will continue.”
