 Red-Breasted Merganser
Birds started to breed in southern Scotland and then in England (in Cumbria 1959) and Wales (Anglesey 1953, mainland 1957).
By 1900 it was breeding through most of Scotland north of the Lowlands and over much of Ireland, save some of the south-east, but none bred in England or Wales.
In Ireland it may have declined slightly recently and it is much persecuted, as in parts of Scotland, for perceived damage to salmonid fisheries.

 Middle East Open Encyclopedia: Referendum
In Switzerland, for example, multiple choice referendums are common; two multiple choice referendums held in Sweden, in 1957 and 1980, offered voters a choice of three options; and in 1977 a referendum held in Australia to determine a new national anthem was held in which voters were presented with four choices.
A further perceived flaw of the referendum is that in some circumstances the democratic spirit of the referendum may be flouted by the repeated submission to the referendum of a proposal until it is eventually endorsed, perhaps due to a low turn-out or public fatigue with the issue.
For example, in the Republic of Ireland only citizens may vote in a referendum whereas British citizens resident in the state are entitled to vote in general elections.
