Thread: Odd bedfellow??????

    Odd bedfellow??????

    Ex-Natural England Director - Martin Howatt looks set to become the new Chairman of BASC.


    Martin Howatt has already alienated Wildfowlers on Lindisfarne by creating a huge no shoot zone,
    and accusing gamekeepers of shooting Hen Harriers is likely to become Chairman of Britain's largest shooting organisation - BASC.
    Have they all gone mad!!!

    “Martyn Howat, chair of English Nature's Hen Harrier Recovery Project and regional general manager, said: "English Nature's Hen Harrier Recovery Project is seeking solutions to the conflict between grouse moor management and hen harrier conservation. Unfortunately hen harriers are still very scarce in the English uplands and are more or less absent from England's grouse moors. The police have a very important role to play in harrier conservation while persecution of this vulnerable species continues."
    I am a little concerned the membership as a whole are not aware of the way things may be going!........... my own membership is due to expire within two months, probably permanently.

    Well, he's been a member of Council for the last two years. Perhaps its a bit like the monarchy - continuity in a world of change.

    I think you will find part of your information is incorrect.
