Where eagles don't dare...

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

At last there is a sensible response to the very daft idea of introducing White-tailed Sea Eagles to East Anglia.  At a recent meeting of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust (NW Norfolk branch) in Hunstanton a vote was taken and the members overwhelmingly rejected the plan.  Good on them.  One member is quoted as saying...

“You've done a wonderful Max Clifford job on the eagle, my fear is in some ways, the RSPB is punting them like Katie Price, like Jordan - the big birds are what brings the punters in, the tourists.”
A little peurile perhaps, but pretty bang on I think.

Unfortunately it still might go ahead, even though not many people think it is a good idea.  A representative of the Country Land and Business Association said... 

“We are dismayed of the continued stance of both the RSPB and Natural England that the introduction will go ahead, with dates for licences and releases being stated when they are still supposedly in consultation with farmers and landowners.”
Insert dismayed swearing here........................................

Have a picture.

Mmmm although I also read a suggestion that the members present were made up of farmers and landowners and gamekeepers etc so perhaps an unsurprising vote if this was true.
