We visit Cheverton Farm on the Isle of Wight, where ravens, crows and other birds have killed 200 lambs in spring 2019. The farm has a herd of 1,750 sheep. However, this is just the start. Natural England and the Roy Dennis Foundation want to impose 60 sea eagles on the Isle of Wight. Farmers and gamekeepers unanimously voted against the release. However, 80% of the island has voted for the release. The pro-eagle release argument is that sea eagles do not affect sheep farms in the Netherlands. The anti-eagle release argument points out that the Netherlands has different farming practices, including lambing indoors.
