I'd say yes to eagles
I WAS saddened, if not surprised, by the large signs which have gone up around Henham and surrounding areas: 'Say No to Sea Eagles'.The white tailed eagles live mainly off carrion, rabbits and fish.

Over thirty years of evidence from the birds released in Scotland show that while they may take young lambs occasionally, in the main these will be already dead or sick animals.
Of course everyone is entitled to express their views but some farmers and landowners nationally have had a poor history when it comes to birds of prey, shooting and poisoning them until we lost some species and put others on the brink of disappearing from the UK, whilst successive governments let it happen.
We need to make room for wildlife and many ordinary local people agree with this proposed re-introduction.
Coastal Suffolk would be lucky indeed to have these beautiful birds back in our skies.
