2/2 Meanwhile nobody knows how many of these traps are being used in Scotland’s countryside (permitted by general licences), where they are or what they are catching. Unmonitored and unaccountable. This has to change @nature_scot @WildJustice_org @MairiMcAllan @lornaslater

An experienced gamekeeper’s flagrant disregard of both the law & the welfare of protected wildlife allows 2 birds to suffer lingering deaths by starvation in an illegally-operated trap. He is “rewarded”with a £300 fine. 1/2

Greatly saddened to read this. Mike was a fount of knowledge and good sense, with a mischievous sense of humour and a big heart. He was one of my 'go-to' people in the @RSPBNews office, who encouraged me hugely. RIP.
Very sad to report the news that former @Natures_Voice and @britishbirds stalwart Mike Everett died peacefully this morning surrounded by his family. @CambsBirdClub @BirdwatchExtra @BirdWatchingMag @RareBirdAlertUK @BirdGuides

At more than 30 sites now across Scotland, hedges are being planted, woodlands and peatlands restored, new wetlands created. Landowners, including farmers, stepping up for nature and climate as partners in the Northwoods Rewilding Network. #BigPicture #RewildingNation

We are calling for greater action to protect #peatlands in #NationalParks; more conservation and restoration work, along with a ban on burning as a land management technique, a ban on peat use in horticulture and a ban on disposable BBQs. Find out more > cnp.org.uk/news/campaign-nat…

Ding ding ding. If I could just have a little moment of silence. Could I ask the 792 crowdfunders of @rivercide_live to please stand up? I'd like to tell you what you've done. If I may, I'm going to read from a newspaper article:

Another pathetic attempt by the field sports lobby to stitch up @ChrisGPackham fails. Well done @RuthTingay for setting the record straight. @IoloWilliams2 @MarkAvery @RaptorPersScot @markruskell @Bob_Elliot @Ian_M_Thomson @ReviveCoalition

'What they're desperately trying to say that time is running out on the greatest crisis we've ever faced.' Journalist George Monbiot tells @susannareid100 and Ben that Insulate Britain are not hiding from their actions as he emotionally explains the dangers of climate change.

Government can't separate private & public interest. "He has set up a scheme that lets private pilots claim public money for new equipment, & allegedly lobbied against a looming ban on toxic fuel used by his aeroplane" #brokenpolitics thetimes.co.uk/article/minis…

*RELEASE* #COP26: EU hypocrisy exposed as #climate conference wraps up. “The EU’s behaviour at COP26 is the definition of hypocrisy and greenwash. (...) It’s a major blow to the EU’s Green Deal and its credibility as a climate leader.” greenpeace.org/eu-unit/issue…

Australia’s largest parrot is the only animal to craft tools for sound, making drumsticks to play beats 🥁 It's just been listed as endangered – but it’s not too late to save them, write @UQVenomLab's @CNZdenek + @ANUFennerSchool's Rob Heinsohn. bit.ly/3qzE6rh

The US is exceptionally good at spinning the media so they're portrayed as "climate leaders" without actually committing to ANYTHING - then placing blame on developing countries instead. This is a perfect example & journos are already falling for it actionaidusa.org/news/fossil… #COP26
