Sorry i wasn’t there for a while, went looking for jobs on DEFRA web-site, found one in my area for controlling and reporting on Ruddy Duck populations. Right up my alley, except for two things:

1) No driving license as yet.

2) No Shotgun license, actually a required field!

Sick of your work, then?

Have been since I started, only took up the position because:

A) Is one of the few good-ish paid jobs in Scarborough that doesn’t involve working in a factory.

B) Is easy.

I am, afterall a Marine Biology Graduate.
