Chris Packham has delivered a masterclass in how to deal with bullies after he was targeted for supporting a campaign to stop people from shooting birds.

The BBC presenter and TV wildlife expert said on Tuesday that he was targetted after he took part in some action which resulted in Natural England revoking three licences that allow the shooting of 16 species of bird, including crows, magpies, Canada geese, and feral and wood pigeons, reports the Evening Standard.

Since going public with his support, he's been the victim of a 'very calculated' death threat, he's had two dead crows hung on his garden gate, and he's also been sent what looks like a penis drawn on a piece of wood.

Yes, that's what we're dealing with here.

In a hilarious video posted onto his Twitter account, he shared the latest 'present' with his followers, in a sarcastic take-down that's been described by his Springwatch colleague Michaela Strachan as a 'masterclass' in dealing with bullies.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote:

I’ve received another gift . . .

In the clip, he can be heard saying:

I've just got home, opened up the post, and someone has sent me a present. And just like everyone else, I love a present, especially this one, because it's been hand crafted.

Needless to say, the hilarious take-down went down a storm on Twitter.

His co-presenter on Springwatch Michaela Strachan summed it up.

Chris Packham, never change.
