Buzzard Cull Off

I am somewhat relieved that the UK coalition has called off the proposed cull of the Buzzard (Buteo buteo) and the destruction of its nests, supposedly to help pheasant rearing for shoots (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildlife/9300074/Plans-to-destroy-buzzard-nests-shelved-in-coalition-u-turn.html). The whole idea seemed to be based on supposition rather than science, as the poor old Buzzard is not much of a predator (being quite partial to road kill and even Earthworms when needs must).
