The author criticizes Mark Avery of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) for assuming that he and his society know far more about birds than many British farmers who have lived and worked on the land all their lives. The favorite word of the RSPB is habitat and this covers a multitude of situations. Growing crops of cereals and sugar beet, provide certain habitats for some species. He calls for a balanced policy on the wild birds.
