It seems that some people – would they be shooters? — have misinterpreted my piece in yesterday’s Independent on Sunday. They imply that I am opposed to all shooting of any kind.
I am not. A well-managed estate that shoots can do good work in conservation.
But the illegal killing of birds of prey is not part of good management.
I am not against shooting. I am against breaking the law.
Is that clear enough? I’ll have another crack at it if anyone’s still in doubt…
