  1. Inquiries for membership to KWCA almost ceased with the advent of the GL fiasco. It won't affect wildfowling members, but may have an adverse affect on those wanting to join for rough shooting etc. If its not sorted soonest I fear it is going to drive some people away from shooting altogether.

  2. Got my licence for corvid control for flora and fauna which took almost exactly a week. Applied by snail mail and got the licence by email. Still waiting for the licence for public health etc. which I applied for at the same time. Alan
  3. The new pigeon GL reinforces this. Huge areas of land now taken out of pigeon shooting. People need to emphasise this when responding to the DEFRA consulation
  4. Yes, section 11 is. I don't think that bonfire ever really got going - rather a good political soundbite!
  5. My limited understanding of EU law as it relates to wild birds is that we would need a derogation under the Birds Directive for any changes, and we all know how easy it is to deal with European matters!
  6. See the new Thread I have started about extending SSSIs See the new Thread I have started about extending SSSIs
  7. NE has been sniffing around opportunities to create buffers around SSSIs for some while. My understanding is that these can be brought forward under the CRoW Act via bylaws. However bylaws are not easy to put in place and require public consultation and due process. It seems that NE are trying another route which requires neither public consultation or due process! SSSIs are high priority sites for predator control. Not only is NE not going to allow that as per below, it is trying to introduce huge buffer zones without any consultation, or indeed any science attached to it. This reinforces my view that this whole saga is being driven by anti-shooting factions both outside and within NE. Everyone needs to scream long and loud about this before it is too late Alan 11. European and nationally protected sites a) For protected sites with interest features that include bird species, no action authorised by this licence is permitted to take place within those sites or within 300 metres of the boundary of such site. For the avoidance of doubt, this restriction applies to: (i) all Special Protection Areas (SPAs); (ii) any Ramsar site with Qualifying Features that include bird species; or(iii) any Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for which a bird species is a feature of special interest.
  8. Collared Doves should come under serious damage to foodstuffs for livestock and public health and safety
