The landowner who took Dartmoor national park to court to ban wild camping may be putting a rare beetle at risk by releasing pheasants next to an ecologically important woodland, against the advice of environmental experts.
This is despite him having said he pushed for a wild camping ban in order to “improve conservation of the Dartmoor commons”, arguing that campers damage the national park with litter and disturbance.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, so if the individual beats the Blob in one manner then the Blob will smear him in another. Ho Hum.
All a bit transparent really, isn’t it?
Anyway, all beetles are rare. No, beetles are not rare, but as a part of God’s inordinate fondness for them any specific type of beetle is rare. So many millions of species, not that many of any specific species. Not entirely and wholly true but close enough.
