Apologies for the non-appearance of yesterday’s blog – I wrote it and then pushed the wrong button (and then spent a lot of time driving on snowy roads).
Is it snowy enough for you? Imagine its impact on wildlife. A week tomorrow it is Big Garden Birdwatch – time to get those bird feeders filled up if they aren’t already.
Let them eat horse? Why is it that we eat cows but not horses? Protect badgers fully but foxes hardly at all? Protect hen harriers fully but crows hardly at all? I can answer the last of those questions but not so easily the first two.
Next Friday evening I am giving a talk at WWT Slimbridge – and you can buy a signed copy of Fighting for Birds too, if you like.
Thank you to my former colleagues in the RSPB for a review of Fighting for Birds on page 87 of Birds magazine. Apparently ‘if you want to understand more of the complexities, including politics, behind the RSPB’s work, this would be a good buy’.
