"One pest that always is around is the Heron, it has cleared out all the fish and reduced the frog population, a protected PEST"
Yet again, the predators get an unfair press. Although they might not fit in with the domesticated ideal of fairytale animals and cute little songbirds, they are part of the natural balance and have as much right to live and survive as any other creature. Stop all this anthropomorphic rubbish and accept the natural world for what it is. Beatrix Potter has a lot to answer for.
