DEFRA backs down on buzzard ‘management’ trial!!
News just in, from Defra’s twitter account:
“We’ve listened to public concerns, so we are stopping current research and developing new proposals on #buzzards”
Fantastic news (well, at least until we find out what these ‘new proposals’ entail). A big, fat, massive WELL DONE to everyone who blogged, tweeted, emailed, petition-signed etc about this outrageous ‘study’. The people have been heard! It’s incredible to see how effective 9 days of campaigning can be!
We’ll post responses here as and when they are published:
