Non-news: I know Tony Juniper!
Today’s Daily Telegraph has a bit of a go at Tony Juniper for knowing me…
It has emerged that Mr Juniper has close links with the group’s [Wild Justice’s] co-founder, former RSPB conservation director Mark Avery.
The pair appear to go back a long way. Two years ago, Mr Juniper collaborated on behind More Binoculars, a book about birds written by Mr Avery. While looking for endangered hen harriers together, Mr Juniper told Mr Avery of his pleasure at “putting the heat on people who should know better”, and of his frustration at “self-centred and ideological” politicians.
Apparently Tony and I have been on conservation panels together and have interacted on social media for years (where in 2012 I wished Tony Happy Birthday, on his birthday, the Torygraph has discovered).

Above: the contents page of Behind More Binoculars which shows others equally likely to have been plotting the downfall of everyone with me (although Tony is obviously the mastermind behind it all).
Note that others involved in plotting the downfall of everyone include the BBC Security Correspondent Frank Gardner (although I guess he is more likely to be plotting with my co-author Keith Betton than with me) and best-selling crime author Ann Cleeves.
Look out for tomorrow’s Sunday Telegraph for news of former equally dodgy collaborators in plotting the downfall of everyone revealed in this earlier book …
… whose list of interviewees reveals that the ring of people plotting the downfall of everyone is even wider, including as it does, a Fellow of the Royal Society (as does Behind More Binoculars actually), a wonderful bird artist, several nature conservationists, authors, TV personalities and most notably Andy Clements who is an NE Board member and has clearly infiltrated NE in order to bring about the downfall of everyone too.
I feel like I am the dead crow dumped on Tony Juniper’s doorway.
