Default I feel sorry for this couple.

A couple have been told they must leave the 60-acre estate they have farmed for 30 years so it can be flooded to boost rare bird populations, under EU regulations.

Couple forced off farm so it can be flooded for breeding birds, under EU rules - Telegraph

I am not sure how I would feel in their position.

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.

Hmmmm, this is basically a compulsory purchase, like for a new railway or bypass, just different circumstances.

I think brining up human rights is a bit much although I'm sure it will be used by the thousands displaced in a similar way by this HS2 nonsense.
