Flying kites: a view from Wales

By - James Robertson

"I would like nothing more than to fill my first report from Wales with some of the wildlife stories which have been occupying the media here - the upland farm which is the spider capital of the world, for example, or the seventy sharks found dead on a Gower beach, thought to be victims of 'bottom trawling', or the spate of attacks by Bottle-nosed Dolphins on Harbour Porpoises in Cardigan Bay, perhaps the work of a single dolphin gang out of the 350-strong population. I shall start instead with a political story which will have a greater effect on the Welsh environment than, say, the replacement of Environment Minister Owen Paterson by Liz Truss."
