Great to see the Yorkshire Post positively covering this increasingly important topic. The area surrounding Middlesmoor is my favourite part of Yorkshire, probably because it reminds me of the Angus Glens. I grew to knew it during my first job in the Rural Estate team at Yorkshire Water.
But enough about me. Grace Newton eloquently covers the positive impact of predator control, heather burning & restoration, the abundance of birdlife and sphagnum moss and the importance of shooting in supporting upland livelihoods.
