Hi Everyone,

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.
