A dear friend of mine, David Conlin, is a member of a European group
called Proact, which works against the slaughter of wild birds in
Europe. Every year he goes to Malta for the raptor migration and gets
roughed up by hunters when he is not careful. He has sent me the
following link to a dreadful video, and asks for letters of protest to
be sent to the European authorities to pressure them to change the
laws. The French hunt Northern Lapwings legally. David said that when
he was a lad the fields were thick with lapwings, but no longer.
Even if you do nothing, it's worth looking to see how the other half -
the so-called civilised half - lives.
