Severn Barrage debate triggers a flood of ideas

Has the RSPB shot itself in the foot with Peter Jones's comment on the need for compensatory habitat 'to ensure the birds...did not migrate elsewhere'?

Why the need to provide anything at vast expense if the problem just flies away?

The compensatory wetland on the Gwent Levels for the Cardiff Bay Barrage cost £4M and, although apparently successful as a wetland project, in the light of this comment seems to have been an unnecessary expense and cost to the taxpayer.

In any event will not the proposed flooding of most of the Fens serve the same purpose?
