The RSPB has lodged a formal complaint to the European Commission over the way Natural England has (mis?)handled its dealings with the Walshaw Moor Estate near Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, concerning moor management regimes. A couple of previous posts on this here and here).
Brilliant news! Well done RSPB – nice to see your teeth bared – good on you!
