  1. Hi Dave, thanks for this. I've just signed. I was devastated and appalled when I read about it earlier this afternoon, I honestly could not believe what I was reading, it cannot be allowed to happen!!!

  2. Hi Shy,
    Thanks for your support. Feel free to spread the word on your blog or facebook, and the link to the petition. I am aiming for 10,000 signatures!
    Fight for these beautiful birds ... :)

  3. Outrageous that there is someone in a high governing body that is proposing this kind of thing! Only too happy to sign!

  4. Well done, Dave! I've signed and shared as much as I'm allowed today. Will be back to share again tomorrow. It's outrageous!

  5. Thanks for this Dave, and for looking in and commenting on Birds2blog which is very much appreciated. Your support and flagging up this appalling 'Management Project' is brilliant.

  6. Thanks John, Omi and Pete. we have quite a lot of buzzards on the island, always lovely to see them mewing overhead, we must all make a stand against this, spread the word!! :)

  7. Good on you, Dave. I heard about this on the radio this morning and it's madness.

    A few weeks ago there was a buzzard found shot in a meadow up near Adgestone - did you hear about that? Think it might have been reported in the County Press.

  8. Yes I heard about it, think there was another on the island too, cant remember where though. Petition has about 25 names so far not even a day old yet, have been tweeting today so numbers should rise hopefully!

  9. Hi Dave, I hope you have heard the wonderful news that the Buzzard persecution plans have been dropped today :-) People power has made sure that common sense has prevailed. I will be able to remove the link to your petition from my blog now. I'm thrilled at the outcome!!!

  10. Excellent news Shy, people power wins the day!! I can go to bed with a smile on my face!!
