The only one that I have completely decided upon is my choice for the Guano Award for environmental harm – DEFRA deserves to ‘win’ this and let’s hope the results are published before or during an election campaign. Whereas the three overseas nominees deserve condemnation they might well shrug off a slap on the wrist from Birdwatch readers so it leaves Norfolk County Council and DEFRA. Both deserve condemnation but I think DEFRA deserve the top (bottom) place. All those badgers? Hopeless on Hen Harriers? A weak Environment Bill? Pretty clear really.
So that’s one award sorted out in my mind (although maybe I will change my mind…). Quite a few others to go. That was the relatively easy one.
