Biodiversity and the revenge of Reynard.

I was surprised by a comment made by a naturalist during a programme on radio 4. Apparently a survey revealed that most people questioned had no idea what the word biodiversity means. Is it just my own obsession with wildlife that makes such a remark a shock? I who have spent two weeks counting small tortoiseshells- and who been horrified by my failure to make double figures? And who have experienced a strange regretful delight that I missed being in the presence of  a bee-eater on the Dorset coast by only 2 days? More significant to me than any near encounter with a human celebrity!

But then we have just witnessed the startling effect on the print media of the realisation that the urban fox is actually a wild animal!
