BMam - please don't put words in my mouth or wilfully misinterpret what I said - I said that 'humane management of these populations allows for .... '.

I certainly did not say that all human attempts at management are humane - and please don't patronise me - I'm a country girl born and bred from a family of countrymen and women who can trace our rural roots back many generations and I don't take notice of 'hype' - my views are based on first hand experience.

And before anyone jumps to conclusions about farmers, even back in the 50s and 60s my Pa did not allow the local fox hunts or harriers on his land and although I rode I never hunted.

Human beings control and manage the landscape in order to produce food and homes  - this in its turn causes inbalances in populations of various types of wildlife - knowledgeable and humane management of these populations allows for a wide variety of flora and fauna to co-exist on what is quite a small group of islands.
