the
results of this research are so clear that the RSPB have had to withdraw
from the
project, cos politically they can't see their members accepting the
results....?

But it's difficult, on a day when when the news features stories about a
Cairngorm landowner shooting his pack of Wolves and a bunch of Germans are
going
out to shoot the first Bear they've seen in the country just because it's
killed a few sheep.

JJD: Yes.  Difficult to be clear on the difference between culling/killing
grey squirrels and mink as opposed to wolves and bears.  Deer are
somewhere in the middle, I suppose.  Sweet little faces but a blooming
menace.  And rabbits.  And badgers.  Strange how such a lot of wildlife
management seems to mean killing. Rat bad, dormouse good, etc etc.
