Shocking Research from Britain

Interesting stuff here. Travelodge, the well known British budget hotel chain, has carried out some research into British people’s attitude towards and knowledge of their countryside.

Some mind boggling results included :

53% thought there was nothing to do or see in Britain’s countryside.

10% could not identify a sheep.

83% could not identify a bluebell.

32% could not identify a pheasant.

The above from Travelmole.

I guess there is really no reason to believe the Irish would fare any better. Or is there ?
