Yesterday’s blog on the rather mindless comments of the NFU to the proposal to reintroduce White-tailed Eagles to the Isle of Wight attracted a lot of good comments. Thank you!
And of course I agree that any such proposal needs proper evaluation and that should include public consultation with a wide range of people.
How is it that reintroducing an extirpated English breeding species requires so much consultation and thought whereas the release of 44 million non-native Pheasants into the countryside each year requires no licence, no impact assessment and no consultation? Why is that?
