And there's more!

DEFRA responds....but as I see it it appears to be addressed to passengers recently embarked from a banana boat which has been at sea for the past week or so and I couldn't resist the photograph of one of these passengers above.  

Of course theres no way I'm prepared to loose sight of the serious side of all this, but DEFRA have completely missed the point of all this 'Buzzard Persecution' and the subsequent outcry from the public at large....well they would wouldn't they, but don't take my word for it, its a bit brief but read for yourself this laughable response from DEFRA HERE and you'll see the smoke screen is still working to good effect. 

To come clean about the banana boat passenger above.... he's been 'nicked' off Rays Blog and if you visit the blog you'll see hes called Finn Norscand. If you're looking for something to cheer you up I can assure you there's always something on Rays blog to do just that and to raise a smile at the very least. 

If there's anyone out there who thinks I'm going on a little over this issue I'm not about to apologise about it, we have to keep up the momentum on this, which reminds me....have you signed the petition yet please.

Thanks for the link to Defra's reposnse Pete, I'd not seen this. As you say a 'smoke screen'! For what it's worth I contacted the Nature section of the BBC yesterday to see if they would cover the story on Springwatch. It probably won't do any good and they probably won't even reply, but worth a try.

Cheers, Seumus

Well done Pete for keeping up the pressure.

Thanks for this Seamus. With regard to 'probably won't even reply' I say they'd better do. I've been in touch with a very high ranking 'person' in ornithology who has yet to reply, but until I'm more convinced 'they' won't do I'll keep my trap shut, but tell you what....if 'they' don't the whole world will get to know about it.

Thanks for your continued support and kind comments on Birds2blog Warren.
