This week I received my new membership card for the RSPB. I have been a member since 1980 and a fellow since about 1995. It is the first time since I joined that I have thought the RSPB have lost the plot. My RSPB fellowship card has a picture of....... a Peacock butterfly.
For goodness sake, with You Forgot the Birds and the Countryside Alliance doing their best to trash the RSPB, this is a ridiculously easy own goal. I want a new card, and I want a picture of a Hen Harrier on it this year. A Red Grouse next year, Black Grouse, the year after and a Merlin the year after that.
up here in Norfolk we don't display Bird organisation stickers on our cars as it makes them a target for theft- they may contain expensive optics etc.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
