don’t grouse, do something

HAS grouse-shooting ever been more under fire before the Glorious Twelfth? During a recent debate in Westminster, the RSPB’s Martin Harper advocated his charity’s approach of licensing. Wild Justice, the vociferous body headed by Chris Packham, Mark Avery and Raptor Persecution Scotland’s (now UK) Ruth Tingay, has, predictably, gone further: they’re demanding a total ban on driven grouse shooting. Defra has, however, thrown the industry a lifeline, which we can only hope it takes up, through the Hen Harrier Action Plan; this makes it possible to shoot grouse and simultaneously increase the population of the rare raptor. Its near absence in the English uplands and regular disappearances of satellite-tagged birds throughout the UK have prompted intense scrutiny of grouse-moor management. What have those who have the most to lose —moor owners and…

thank you for the music

A TITIAN has been unearthed in the centre of London, where Dukes of Wellington and curators have walked past it unawares for 200 years. For centuries, Orpheus Enchanting the Animals—which shows the legendary musician transfixing his traditional enemies the lion and the unicorn with his melodies—has been attributed to Alessandro Varotari, a follower of Titian, and since then, it has had a tumultuous journey to the UK. Napoleon stole it from the Spanish royal collection and the 1st Duke of Wellington subsequently rescued it from the Emperor’s baggage train on the Vitoria battlefield in June 1813. A grateful Ferdinand VII was moved to give it to the Duke, along with 81 further paintings and, since then, it’s been at Apsley House, London W1. For the past 18 months, Orpheus Enchanting the Animals…

building the future

A MAJOR London train station is vying with a Scottish distillery and a carbon-neutral private home to be named Britain’s best new building this autumn. The six shortlisted buildings for the 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize differ vastly in their scale, purpose and location: Goldsmith Street in Norwich offers energy-efficient social housing; London Bridge station is a reconfiguration of a major transport hub; Nevill Holt Opera in Leicestershire is a new performing space; The Macallan Distillery in Moray comprises a high-tech visitor centre; Cork House in Berkshire is a carbon-neutral private house; and The Weston (above) is Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s new gallery space. For RIBA president Ben Derbyshire, each project is a showcase for innovation. ‘From the way that Cork House experiments with entirely plant-based materials to Goldsmith Street’s ultra-low-energy affordable homes, each…

‘a pat and a chat’

SOUTH YORKSHIRE is rejoicing at the return of its mounted-police section, which moved into refurbished premises at Ring Farm, Cudworth, last month. The section had been housed in West Yorkshire since 2016 in an effort to cut costs, but, after careful consideration, the decision was made to bring the unit back into the local area for the benefit of the community. South Yorkshire Police is one of just 13 mounted departments in the UK, but, as a recent survey conducted by the University of Oxford and RAND Europe found, people are six times more likely to approach a mounted police officer than one on foot. The South Yorkshire department is tasked with liaising with rural and urban communities on horseback and supporting a variety of initiatives, including safeguarding, educating and building…
