Sir: Like your correspondent Meredith Stranges, I spent last Saturday enjoying the English countryside at its finest.

There were birds singing, kestrels hovering, snowdrops and the first few primroses showing. I, too, was warmly greeted by those on horseback and on foot. However, unlike your correspondent, I enjoyed all this without requiring the pursuit and death of any animal.

The idea that the ban on hunting will interfere with enjoyment of the countryside is nonsense.
