Wild birds trapping and shooting

As a gamekeeper ,on the ground,it is quite clear we don’t need any more restrictions regarding vermin control ,their numbers increase every year ,while more vulnerable species like curlew lapwing etc are disappearing at alarming levels, no lapwings or curlews have nested on this estate for four years ,the last pairs losing their broods to crows and badgers ,which could of been avoided with less restrictions

There has been a huge increase in the number of corvids over the last 50 odd years,apart from jays. Larsen traps are a very successful way to catch them and it is vital for the protection of other bird species that they are allowed to continue legally.h
