I wonder if Mr Mackinnon consulted with his members in the Crofters Union before he issued a rash statement to preserve the lamb eating White Tailed Eagle?

One tends to think in this case its an 'I'm alright Jack' type of attitude?

I left the Crofters Union many years ago, as most of the vocal ones tend to be incomers and New Age travellers. I nailed my colours to the NFUS mast – has no one asked their opinion?

The quicker they get rid of this damn bird, the better for other birds and crofting!
