Disgruntled country dwellers have upset BBC eco-loon Chris Packham by tying some dead birds to his gate. I feel their pain. If I were a dead rook, I too would feel mortified at the horror of having my feathery corpse put anywhere near the premises of this sinister, starry-eyed, bunny-hugging misanthrope who has about as much understanding of rural affairs as Theresa May does of Brexit.
