Buzz off!

Buzzard rose above a wood while I was out surveying, calling out its territory and I thought, ‘Why would you not want to see more of that bird in this country? Why would you not want to hear that marvellous cry which touched a nerve inside me? A call which reaches into the wild inside us all, making me want to down tools, shed layers, say ‘bugger it.’ Who are these people, backed up by our present government, who would see that bird eradicated because they take a few blasted pheasants. What’s wrong with these people that they can’t welcome a little wild back into our overly tamed countryside?
