    A good read! What a shame they went missing.

    Is it the result of predation by a mutant fox or the vicious hands of a bird watcher? Beating them to death with shockproof and waterproof binoculars, while the unfortunate youngsters, valiantly protected their hen harriers.

    As for renewed breeding, that should only be done in captivity, for their protection and of course genetic selection to breed out their malicious hatred of birds of prey. This may take several generations before they could be safely released!

    Mid last century, experimental breeding to remove vicious tendencies in arctic foxes was found to take 40 or so generations before the desired changes occurred. The time involved may result in expenses beyond the current means of the country.

    Perhaps vicarious liability could be used to fund the breeding programme. But who is to blame?

    The hoy-poloy may have to employ other low life forms to ensure biodiversity on the grouse moors.

    Long live the GWCT, who are they? Answers on a postcard to the postmaster.

    They probably fell foul of too many curry’s laid out with bag of chips and laced with Carbofuran poison , this would have been followed by a severe dunking of their expensive radio tags in a pint of beer by those unscrupulous ornithologists. These ornithologists who are organised by the RSPB and others will stop at nothing to ensure a good year for the harriers at the expense of the poor persecuted Red Grouse !!!
