English Nature flies to the rescue of birds

A spokeswoman for English Nature has called for ‘better designed buildings’ in light of a growing number of birds killing themselves by hitting the reflective glass on the group’s headquarters in Peterborough.

Many rare species, supposedly protected by English Nature, have mistaken the glass for clear skies ahead, consequently flying straight into it and ending up scattered around the base of the building.

As a result, the organisation has spent £2000 putting hundreds of hawk silhouettes on the glass panels to ward off birds. Surely using the dead animals would be cheaper.
