Thread: Welsh eagle

  1. #1

    Welsh eagle

    Saw this story on the Beeb, about a Golden Eagle spotted near Pontrhydygroes, it itself great news if it is a wild bird, however, what struck me about the report is a quote, about halfway down the article from Grahame Madge of the RSPB
    "We find that golden eagles are still regularly poisoned in Scotland near areas where grouse are found" Mr Madge added.
    1. This is a story about an eagle spotted in Wales so WTF is the relevance of that "fact"?

    2. Why is the BBC repeating it? They just can't resist the opportunity to peddle their agenda with sideswipe at Country pursuits, in this case Grouse shooting.

    It's why (regrettably) I stopped my membership of the RSPB. Their agenda of blaming all raptor problems on the shooting fraternity finally got too much for me, the hypocrisy is that a) some raptors do better on managed grouse moors than in RSPB reserves and b) the RSPB aggressively control predators on some of their reserves.
