The rise in the Bird of Prey population is having a dramatic effect on the songbird population in this Country. BOP levels are at an all time high and having a disastrous effect on the survival of the songbirds. We would like to see a limit introduced on breeding pairs of Birds of Prey for an agreed time scale. Data can then be obtained to see if the songbird population levels recover. We believe this is a fair and sensible approach to this increasing problem. Pigeon fanciers are losing racing birds each and every time they are letting their birds out of their loft. They have no way of protecting their beloved birds and have to stand by while they are being massacred. We would like a solution found to this problem. Farmers are allowed to protect their livestock if being attacked and pigeon fancier would like the same laws to apply to them. Birds of Prey have relocated to towns and cities as the countryside is rife with them. People who used to be members of the RSPB have even written letters condemning the protection and that they are disgusted at the way the songbird population is just seen as food for these Birds of Prey. Gone are the days when you can look from your living room window and see a host of songbird species playing around your garden. My own garden used to be ripe with Bluetits, Starlings, Chaffinches etc but those days are sadly past for myself and a great many others. The RSPB blame farming, pesticides, global warming, when the real answer is staring them right in the face. The Bird of Prey levels have been growing year in - year out and without regulation or consideration for the effect these increases have had on other types of birds. We urge you to sign this petition which will be sent to various newspapers/MP's/RSPB in the hope something will be done to help protect the songbirds that once were abundant for all to see, but are now disappearing at an alarming rate. The website gives the link to our Facebook Action page where bird lovers, pigeon fanciers etc are welcome to post their pictures, opinions regarding the damage the Bird of Prey population is doing. Thank you for your time and with everyone's help hopefully the songbird population will be restored for future generations to enjoy.
