Dear Mr Turley,
I wrote to the RSPB on the 22nd July regarding a pheasant I spotted in my North London garden and you kindly wrote back suggesting I contact Mr Hawker, my nearest pheasant breeder. I did as you suggested, but unfortunately found Mr Hawker less than forthcoming.
I can't help discerning, in his emails, a degree of something approaching nervous guilt (please see below) and our correspondence seems to have hit a bit of a brick wall. Is there perhaps some official inspection that could be made of his pheasant farm by the RSPB? I can't help feeling it's quite necessary.
I know you must be very busy and thank you once again for your time!
Very best wishes,
