    Action Alert from BASC - unexpected as no longer a member

    This is really for David BASC who once asked me on another site for evidence that BASC continued to send me material by e-mail, despite me not having been a member for some time. This David is todays message sent to an e-mail address BASC should no longer use.

    Have your say on proposal
    to take white-fronted geese
    off the quarry list in Wales


    The Welsh Government is seeking views on a proposal to remove white-fronted geese from the quarry list. Five options are presented in a consultation which ends on 7 March.
    BASC is calling on all shooters in the UK to email natureconservation@wales.gsi.gov.uk by 7 March in support of option 5 proposed in the consultation, which is to retain the status quo - a voluntary ban on shooting Greenland white-fronted geese. The other four options are various ways of taking white-fronted geese off the quarry list.
    The voluntary moratorium on shooting white-fronted geese on the Dyfi estuary has proved highly effective since its introduction in 1972. However, protectionists continue to lobby the Welsh Government for the species to be taken off the quarry list.
    BASC will be responding to the consultation in support of option 5 and urges all shooters to follow suit.

    Very happy to Paul but maybe David BASC can deal with both problems?

    This won't help kes, but it might help Paul.

    If you log into BASC's website and click on "Mailing Preferences" you can identify what newsletters you want to get and which email address they should be sent to. Then just check that BASC is on your list of safe senders in your email program. Always worth checking "Junk Mail" as well.

    When I asked for their help all I got was told what to do myself, which I knew already, but as I was in the Job felt that it would be better coming from someone outside on my behalf.
    So since then I have never had, nor wanted, anything from BASC other than their periodical and a copy of the Insurance to satisfy some shooting agents.

    You could just block them as spam and that would be the end of it.
