    Yes cretinous morons, I did not realise until the other day that according to information on the GWCT website , on the Langholm project, link from that,that in Scotland last year 73 Raven control licences were issued, read all about it, siting severe problems with sheep and lambing problems,due to Ravens, I did not know this at all, I did think that the Raven was not doing as well as could be in that area, no wonder now.
