Fairness in Wild Bird Licensing: Gamekeeper Wins Landmark Legal Battle

A gamekeeper from Northumberland has today (13/11/15) won a landmark legal battle after a Judicial Review at the High Court in London quashed the decision of Natural England – the Government’s conservation advisor – to refuse to issue him with a licence to control a small number of buzzards that were causing serious damage to young pheasants in his care during the summer of 2014.

The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation said the court’s judgment had established that in order to be lawful, “wildlife licensing decisions must, in future, be made by Natural England fairly and on the facts, without NE exceeding its powers”. The NGO, which represents keepers in England and Wales, supported the gamekeeper’s court battle.
