That's it, everyone has their own agenda. In my last house I had a large garden with loads of wildlife and a row of horse chestnut trees on my boundary. I asked my neighbours if they'd mind me culling the magpies in "our trees" as nobody was sure whose they were. Oh no was the reply, you can't shoot the magpies, the RSPB says they aren't a threat to bird life. Well later that year they proudly announced that they had a chaffinch nest in their cherry tree and they could see into it from their bedroom window. 3 weeks later they asked me to shoot the magpies as they had taken the chicks within a day of hatching, both magpies gone within 24 hours, happy neighbours, not so happy with RSPB though. As the saying goes, he who saves everything conserves nothing. I conserve what I want and control those I don't want.
