Stop the Government Selling Off Our Forests - Please sign this petition

I'm not one for using this blog for 'tin rattling' but I feel that this is an important issue that needs to be spoken out against. Its an issue that will effect many birds and birders.

Although I appreciate that we are going through some tough economic times and the Government is trying to save money but this latest news is disturbing. 'Caroline Spelman, the Environment Secretary, is expected to announce plans within days to dispose of about half of the 748,000 hectares of woodland overseen by the Forestry Commission by 2020'.

'The controversial decision will pave the way for a huge expansion in the number of Center Parcs-style holiday villages, golf courses, adventure sites and commercial logging operations throughout Britain as land is sold to private companies.'

So I ask you all to please click on the below link and sign the petition.
