Don’t pol­lard dur­ing the nest­ing sea­son

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

OUR lo­cal au­thor­ity is for­ever boast­ing about its ef­forts to be highly re­garded as the most en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly city in the UK; point one.

Point two: Due to pes­ti­cides and the com­mer­cial destruc­tion of habi­tats our bird pop­u­la­tion has taken a ham­mer- ing and is in se­ri­ous de­cline, so can some­one in the coun­cil ex­plain to us why, right in the mid­dle of the nest­ing sea­son, the decision to pol­lard the row of trees along­side the Eye ceme­tery that is op­po­site the Sue Ry­der shop?

This is un­nec­es­sar­ily costly to both the bird pop­u­la­tion and to the tax­payer.

So caring . . . pop­py­cock!
