Sir, – I felt the need to share my thoughts on the 'Songbirds get a lifeline' letter by Daniel Brown, of the RSPB, last week.

What a clever idea the RSPB have come up with – if they control the predation by vermin, then waders might increase in numbers. What a fantastic idea – it's just a pity us country yokels didn't come up with that idea years ago!

Well done guys you might just save our waders before it's too late.
