    Another one…
    It must be nesting season.
    Clearly those taking such good care of our shooting estates are above the law.
    After all it would not be on not t be allowed to maximise profits from shooting.
    We see this again and again…
    It has been heard for the officers of the law to be invited onto the shoots.
    Just a rumour!

    As ever, begging the question how many have been shot and not found?
