"Nid wrth ei big mae prynu cyffylog" You don't buy a Woodcock based on the length of its bill (= "don't judge a book by its cover"). From the practice of selling woodcocks in a closed bag with only the beaks visible. @hillierdavies @melangellcadle @rivers_disguise @IoloWilliams2

This is horrible to see. You can donate @OrangutansSOS and your money will be doubled to help save these lovely animals and increase the rainforest for them.
We can never be considered the most advanced species on this planet, when we treat our nearest relatives like this

Desperate news. We must accommodate wildlife in the way we manage the land, and we must do it now.

Christmas present idea #1: You’d expect us to say this, but we think a year’s membership of WOS would make a lovely gift for you or the birder in your life 😊 You’ll be really helping us to promote birding, the study and conservation of birds in Wales. birdsin.wales/support-wos/

Wise words @rtaylorjones
Very sad....and also avoidable in many cases.... we need to change how we farm our landscape - fast. We need to address climate change better, now. We need to create better housing developments today...and on and on it goes... We need to do so much... but I believe we can.
