If you haven't done so already can I urge you to complete the consultation on the birds and habitats directive that the EU are undertaking at the moment. They refer to it as a fitness check, but it is actually more like an attempt to weaken the laws that protect our wildlife. Without this protection the numpty in 10 Downing Street would wreak more havoc on our beleaguered wildlife than he already has!
You can complete the consultation via the RSPB HERE or you can go straight to the EU consultation HERE
The forecast is looking a bit mixed for weekend with Saturday the better day and the only day with a half chance of doing some mist netting in the reedbeds. I've also got some Kestrels to check, so it should be a busy and bird filled weekend for me.
