Does BASC (the British Association for Shooting, and, ahem, conservation) know its arse from its elbow?
It certainly can’t tell the difference between a merlin and a lanner falcon (see here) and now it seems to be struggling to tell the difference between a buzzard and a hen harrier!
You know, if you’re going to profess to love a bird of prey, it helps your credibility if you’re first able to identify it. Otherwise it just looks like you’re pretending.
In this latest outpouring of proclaimed love from BASC for Britain’s most persecuted bird of prey, it is claimed that,
‘More grouse moors have embraced the hen harrier brood management scheme this year as confidence in the project grows‘.
Hmm. But not everything is as it seems. Standby for what we’re told is imminent breaking news that puts this alleged ’embracement’ in a totally different light…….
