    You think that's silly......

    This from the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds).....

    Enjoy the Splatter !

    Is the UK losing its buzz?
    That's the question thousands of people will help to answer by counting the number of insects 'splatted' on their car number plates in a ground-breaking new survey.

    The RSPB Big Bug Count runs from 1-30 June 2004. Participants will be armed with a splatometer to help them count the 'splats' on their vehicle number plate after a journey. We aim to use the information we collect to help build a picture of insect populations across the UK.

    Many species of birds depend on insects - either as the main part of their diet or as food for their chicks. Swallows and house martins are specialist insect hunters, but seed-eating birds, such as skylarks and house sparrows, also need insects to feed to their young. Many of these birds have declined in recent years, for example house sparrow numbers have fallen by 62% in the last 25 years.

    Richard Bashford, RSPB Big Bug Count co-ordinator, explains: 'Despite the importance of insects to birds, there has been little monitoring work. A large-scale study is needed to back up anecdotal suggestions and some scientific evidence that insects have declined. This is where the RSPB's Big Bug Count comes in.'

    There are more than 23,000 insect species in the UK and they are essential for pollinating crops and plants, recycling and of course, as a food source for other creatures, including birds.
    A splatometer is a cardboard grid to aid the counting of insect splats on a number plate. The splatometer is a registered trademark of the RSPB.
    'By taking part in Big Bug Count you'll be helping the RSPB look at how insect declines may be affecting some of our best-loved birds.'

    The reasons why there may be fewer insects around are not yet known - theories include habitat loss and pesticides. RSPB Big Bug Count won't identify causes of insect declines, but it will provide a first step in helping to monitor future changes in the abundance of flying insects across the UK.

    Richard added: 'Big Bug Count can be done on any journey (ideally between 20 and 80 miles) you take during June 2004. Preferably in dry weather, as rain during your journey could wash insects off the number plate. Even journeys with no splats provide very useful information, so please send your form to us even if your count is zero.'

    To take part in the survey, click the link on this page or call the Big Bug Count hotline number 0870 787 5577 (calls charged at national rate). The hotline will be operational until 21 June 2004.

    From the folks who brought you the Ministry of Silly Walks....
    This is great.
    I'm sure we will now feel compelled to do the same as the world's remaining superpower except spend a ridiculously heinous amount of money like using spaced base laserbeams to track and destroy bugs that illegally cross state lines. Bug Wars. It will all be top secret but leaked to the press by disgruntled employees, where FoxNews and CNN will give radically different interpretations. Some bugs will naturally apper concerned and be asked to interview on Larry King; People magazine will some how relate this to Princess Diana and American country singers will write about putting a boot in the ass of a cricket...
