    Of course you are entitled. No one is saying you are not entitled. There is no point in falling out over this. It's clear you are not getting the point I am trying to make, so I will shut up. Over and out. The floor is all yours...

    Devils advocate here .....The wholesale extermination of anything with teeth or claws on grouse moors and your proposed cull of cormorants - both the eradication of one or more species so you can kill another for pleasure, what’s the difference and how do you spin it with the public?

    The consensus appears to be that it interferes with profit and the businesses employ locals..to help exterminate hares and the like

    There have been one or two encounters off Cornwall that might indicate that they might already be here!
    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”

    I've heard it said many times there is no reason why we shouldn't have great whites in our waters.

    Tiger sharks enjoy a meal 'on the feather'...
