    Well it seems the EU has stepped in and made a Life+ Funding grant of£80,000,000. so that the Great Bustard can once again roam the reaches of Southern England.
    The official statement was thus:- Thanks to the EU+ Life programme the Great Bustard once a very common sight in the sky's of southern England will once again be seen, the Bustard was hounded to Extinction.

    My question is do you think the EU+ Life programme might do the same for the Fleet Air Arm, which also was a common sight in the sky's of Southern England and was also hounded and hunted to extinction by successive governments.:toothy10:

    You can't shoot a wafu out of the sky with a good quality air rifle, a great bustard however......

    Do you mean why can't you shoot down a petrol pigeon or why shoot a bustard????

    Why can't you shoot down wafu's, are they a protected species now. I've "shot down" quite a few in the past.:toothy10:

    They're a protected species now as numbers have fallen to dangerous levels.

    Maybe we should capture the few remaing speciemens and put them in a zoo somewhere? or have them stuffed and mounted in a museum..... Discuss
