That’s because the wildlife is getting squeezed into less and less space giving the impression the area is teeming. When in fact they are all competing for the smaller and smaller green space.

Sounds wrong but the more rural you go, the less likely you will see wildlife. This is because it has the space and can stay away from human contact who are it’s biggest enemy.

Brian May, has refused to play at Glastonbury due to the stance on on trying to rid Badgers from his farm. There are of course CLEAN TB FREE Badgers and they need to be protected however the compensation from Dairy farmers who succumbed to this disease is devastating. Commercial Dairy cattle are circa £300 and might do 4-6 lactations, but a Pedigree herd that can take years to build up are valued at the same compensation price, a pedigree first calver could be circa £1800. one of my clients was left only to kill himself after he had a reactor and it went right through the herd. so Mr May, have some sympathy with farmers who are surrounded with Dirty Badgers, they do not have the security that he does by playing a few song that earns him the royalties.
i have had been out (in the Past) shooting them but now half of them you see on the road have been dumped there but Guys out with their rifles, Deer Too are a pest that carry the disease, but as for Badgers eating HedgeHogs....dont thing So

Leave the Badgers Alone Baldy why do you have a thing against Badgers the badger cull has not worked. Less cows the better that will stop them spreading amongst themselves if Baldy had his way Fox hunting and deer hunting would be the norm another right wing thing.

If you want to protect Hedgehogs do what me and my wife do have a Hedgehog home in your Garden we filmed hedgehogs  in September and we enjoy having them plenty of space for Hedgehog's, Badgers, etc but you keep building the wildlife will have to adapt that's when problems start.

One last thing I am a labour supporter and a lefty  ;) and just about fed up with the right Wing media if Jeremy Corbyn did what Boris did at the Cenotaph on Sunday putting the wreath the wrong way around just what the press would of committed murder on him but Johnson nothing the BBC actually cut out Johnson laying his wreath and put him laying one from 2016 it's like we are now being Shown and told what to believe just like the Russians and Chinese never believe anything in the News or Papers.

I agree with you JimKerr regarding the badgers. The cull had/has very little effect. Healthy badgers were killed. Smaller herds of cows with better separation, like we had 50 years ago, would be a better course of action.

One other thing. If I recall correctly you voted to leave the EU. Do you stand by that decision seeing as it was based on the theory that it would oust Cameron from office? Being a self confessed lefty, would you vote the same way in another referendum?

Yes Bob I voted Leave I am from South Wales living here but I voted leave but with a GOOD Deal I don't care about migration from the EU I have no problem with poles or anyone trying to get a better life  it's not a problem it's only becomes a problem when the wages are so low that the working poor here still have to claim benefits to get by you have to Blame employers not the migrant.

One thing for sure I would never Vote Tory nor the Brexit Party Far Right Tory so I will vote Labour then Vote Leave on what ever Deal they get because we must protect Jobs only winners in Johnson's and Farage's Version is the rich man.

There lies the underlying problem. Everyone's version of what they voted for is different.

I'm not convinced any deal (Johnson's, May's, Corbyn's or whoever's)  will safe guard jobs...

The Hard Right keep saying 17.2 Million voted  to just leave that is a lie we was promised a good deal and if we don't get it I am one Happy to stay in the EU rather than vote Johnson/Farage.

Whilst not a great fan of the RSPCA for reasons I wont go into now I do agree with their stance on Badger culling

https://www.rspca.org.uk/adviceandwelfare/farm/bovinetb

Extract from above link:

Bovine TB in cattle
We don't support the badger cull and believe that more can be done to tackle the disease in cattle. We believe there are solutions that will benefit farmers, cattle and badgers.

We're pleased with the conclusion of the Godfray review published last year, stating that the focus of policy on the badger had taken attention away from how to better manage the disease in cattle.

I've twice been attacked by a badger, never by a hedgehog.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.
