This is one of those awful examples of the use of sticks and no carrots -
protection by fiat often backfires. If the woodpeckers are on your property
you should be rewarded in some way eg rates reduction not punished by having
your property declared a protected habitat with no compensation!

The road to hell is paved with good intentions!

Let's hope they review their approach...
