IS Harry Enfield aware ("I'd rather be a pheasant than a cow, yes I would", 2 April) that a recent poll reveals that 78 per cent of the citizens of this country join Spike Milligan in his condemnation of those members of the Royal Family who participate in blood sports?

Incidentally, if Mr Enfield equates being a pheasant with "romping around the countryside making klaxon noises", one can easily understand why he considers this particular change of role to be so appropriate for him.

His attack on Spike Milligan, a man of great compassion and sensibility, was disgustingly abusive.
