NGO's Crucial Response on General Licences

The NGO has sent Natural England a full and robust response to its consultation on the future of the General Licences for controlling pest birds. Many of the proposals in NE's 48-page document are impractical, such as the infamous 'shoo before you shoot' clause, which would also apply to all bird trapping. Others are unsupported by science, for example the suggestion that jays should come off all the licences, alongside jackdaws and hooded crows. In a crucial contribution to the debate, the NGO has contested these proposals one by one. You can read the letter we sent here and the NGO's full response here. And if you like what you read, please email NE at this address: and say that you have read and support the NGO's response.
