Goes without saying that gamekeepers and their landed gentry landowner scuzzers are the barnacles on the arseholes of the world when it comes to raptor persecution. A pox on them and their patrons, preferably one that engenders such agony as enduring the Euro Song Contest 12 times in succession.
Bird trappers and ringers piss me off to a much lesser extent but still have a lot to answer for. Who are they trying to fool; all the hype about benefitting the bird is horse shit. Ultimately all the stress caused by a bird hanging upside down in a net before being manhandled then metallised is for one sole objective: to satisfy mankind's curiosity.
Yes I've been watching Springwatch.
