Save and Protect British Song birds Society

308 Signatures Goal: 500

Due to gross mismanagement by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) we have seen a catastrophic decline in our native British song bird populations in the last three decades, the latest such casualty being the essentially 'British' cuckoo which has now been added to the endangered list. The major cause of this decline has been the overpopulation of the sparrow hawk, goshawk and peregrine falcon, permitted by the protection policy of the RSPB together with its persistent 'seeding' of peregrines in major cities throughout the country. These birds have no natural predator other than man, and must be controlled to protect our songbirds. We therefore ask the government, the RSPB and its Patroness her majesty the Queen to remove these predators from the endangered lists. NB. Parliament's Private Member's Bill of 1954 (Lady Tweedsmuir) promised to lift protection of these raptors after five years. That promise has been reneged on for well over fifty years now.This will be handed to the prime minister and the Patron of the R.S.P.B and R.P.R.A her Majesty the Queen
