AB The Hen Harrier is a rare breeding bird in The Netherlands, nearing
  its extinction rapidly. Only 19 pairs were recorded in 2009, of which
  17 on the Wadden Sea Islands; this is just 15% of the numbers
  registered in 1994. On the island of Terschelling, two nests were
  disturbed in 2009. Both nests had been the focus of attention of
  photographers, as visible from the trampling of vegetation and the
  creation of clearly visible paths to the nest. One of these nests is
  supposed to have been raided for commercial purposes (chicks
  at the other nest one of the chicks was found nearby, deliberately
  trampled to death. Both nests may have been easier to find by people
  with bad intentions because of the behaviour of photographers. Codes
  of conduct for photographers are now available from several
  organisations, and disturbances are therefore unnecessary.
