Flight Of Fancy?

Yet another small item spotted in the print edition of today's Daily Telegraph is a report that states, according to Professor Spencer Schaffner (an academic - origin unknown) who suggests that birdwatching encourages pollution, due to the fact that when hundreds of enthusiasts visit a site where a rare bird has been spotted, it means a heavy use of transport.

It is recognised that the climate change/ global warming/ CO2 emissions bandwagon is one that everyone is trying to get aboard, but is this latest 'pronouncement' not a case of trying to fly one 'kite' too many?

Update: Having 'googled' the good Professor, this is the result - and origin of the Telegraph article no doubt!
