RSPB AGM and gamebirds
Tomorrow is the RSPB AGM and one of many interesting items will be the revelation of the RSPB’s new improved shiny policy on gamebird shooting. The RSPB announced at last year’s AGM that it was doing the review and the shooting organisation have been whipping themselves up into a frenzy over it ever since (as they do!).
In a predictable attempt at a spoiler, shooting organisations are trumpeting a rather meaningless list of principles of game management (BASC, GWCT, Countryside Alliance, Moorland Association). Principles? The Countryside Alliance? Hmm!
Let’s see what the RSPB comes up with tomorrow.
