Twitcher in the Swamp
"After having rather clangingly failed to 'reverse the decline of farmland birds by 2010', our Government is back with a new target. This time is will reverse the decline by 2020. And if the birds have not pulled themselves together by then, well, 2030, anyone? This may not be the right moment to point out that we did not miss this particular target by a whisker. In mathematical terms, we missed it by infinity."
