This is very worrying and concerning news from Mark Avery former director of conservation at the RSPB about the woodland trust and the concern of the woodland trusts members.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

In reply to Mike B:
The worrying thing is there have been problems now lasting for over 4 weeks with members of the woodland trust that still haven't received there orders from the online shop and despite enquiries by members, no one from the woodland trust has replied. Also possible new woodland trust members haven’t been able to join as members. There are a lot of worried members at the present moment of the woodland trust. I’m not a member, as you can’t be a member of every wildlife and conservation charity. But I hope everything is ok at the woodland trust.
In reply to Robbo:
Robbo said:Staff may have been furloughed to save money?
I was about to say the same.
Possibly! But for those members, who haven’t had any news what’s happening, it will be worrying. I have been talking as well before Christmas 2020 at my local Wildfowl and Wetland Trust reserve that a number of staff are worried about possible new objectives that the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust might be going to undertake and of lots of conservationists are worried about certain things being talked about within the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust over the short term and possibly longer.
I'd have thought facebook and instagram posts will be written from home either while fully paid, or while furloughed. The online shopping issue clearly can't be dealt with from home.
