Paul has done me the honour of giving me another five minutes of fame on his blog, see here. This time it refers to my blog post today of permission refusals.
I will be honest I do know know what the man is talking about. I dont know if he Is accusing me of being a liar or if he Is saying that the oxford study is false.
He appears to think night hawking is not as big a problem as it is in the metal detecting andffarming community. I find this a strange conclusion to come to given I don't believe he has any first hand experience of knocking on doors for permission.
He has however read a study by some Oxford academics. Well case closed then I must have imagined being refused by just under half the local East Yorkshire farms I have visited in person. I must also have made up their reasons being due to night hawk activity.
