Hen Harriers are ‘perilously close’ to being wiped out from their last remaining stronghold in the country - in the Ribble Valley. No hen harriers are attempting to nest in the Bowland Fells the RSPB said.

Only four nesting pairs raised chicks last year, all in Bowland, where landowner United Utilities has encouraged the management of its estate to support the birds, the wildlife charity said.

If only one pair nests in England this year, it will be the worst breeding season since they recolonised the country in the 1960s after being driven to extinction in the late 19th century.
