Having planted trees in my village in the early 1970s, created a four-acre wildlife reserve in the 1980s and annually coppiced firewood in nearby woods for many years.
I used to feel proud when people on occasion said ‘I hear you are a bit of a conservationist.’
“IN The EARLY ‘1990s’ – My Wife AND I SAW OUR VERY FIRST Sparrowhawk.”
WITHIN A YEAR WE WERE APPALLED BY LOCAL SONGBIRD LOSSES!
Appeals to the RSPB (which in those days we trusted totally) to consider the need for control of the rapidly increasing hawk population proved fruitless and their reasoning suspect.
“In the late 1990s, badgers wiped out hedgehogs and decimated bumblebee nests in our mini-nature reserve as well as doing damage to farmland and village gardens.”
‘We raised the matter with our local Wildlife Trust but there was a – Horrified reaction when we suggested the need for badger control.’
With so-called professional environmentalists, the RSPB the BBC the Bill Oddie types full of half truths and seeking suburban popularity. “I now find the title of conservationist rather distasteful.”
‘I prefer conserve or plain countryman.’ Despite not participating in field sports we are now subscribers to Shooting Times rather than national wildlife magazines. As we prefer the wise countryman’s logic of ST’s contributions to the biased pseudo-scientists. G Morris, Suffolk
