And secondly; I'm now a conservation activist!..... and as Chris Packham said yesterday "a conservation activist and not an animal rights activist, there is a big difference" and I'm proud to be one! Although to be honest I probably always have been, as over the years I have spoken to hundreds if not thousands of people raising awareness to the plight of our environment.

Birders Against Wildlife Crime who superbly put in to context what Hen Harrier Day is all about. Mike Clarke RSPB's Chief Executive who not only spoke about the RSPBs role in Hen Harrier Day but also connected it brilliantly to the Thames marshes. And last but certainly not least Chris Packham who has, with his passion and dedication taken this campaign and other campaigns to a much wider audience. He as all the speakers did, spoke with passion and enthusiasm which inspired the hundreds of people listening. And the whole rally was brilliantly linked together by Dr Mark Avery
