Row as Defra targets Cumbria's buzzards

Plans to destroy buzzards nests and capture and cage the bird of prey have been called “scientifically illiterate” and “morally indefensible”.

Have your say

DEFRA - To put it simply , NO,

Dr Armstrong has summed it up perfectly.

To kill a native bird, and a stunning bird at that, for the sake of a few alien species is incomprehensible. And why do we have these alien birds? so a small minority of people can enjoy killing them.... it's just impossible to see any logic.

what about the peregrine falcon's, they do more damage to the small birds and pheasants than the buzzards would ever do, its about time they got there house in order,i have witnessed attacks on many occasions peregrine's taking all kinds of birds.
p.s, a very angry k graham.

This is just a complete joke,how about all the small birds that are being decimated by Sparrow Hawks and Peregrines.The RSPB have brain washed Joe Public with the loss of these small birds and blame everyone except themselves,breeding of Peregrines and releasing them into the wild,spending thousands of pounds protecting BOP instead of protecting what has now become a rare sight to see the common garden species.Time to tell the truth and let people know what is really happening to our song birds etc.

"This research is about maintaining the balance between captive and wild birds."
Don't believe anything you read and only half of what you see would have been my old mans comment.
