Confused ( it doesn't take much)

Recommended Posts

I have posted a query in the general shooting matters forum regarding crows and am grateful for the replies members have given me.

One of which was that all birds are protected in the UK and that to shoot any of  them may cause problems with either the RSPCA or the RSPB should neighbours complain ( crows are a pain that are nesting in a large tree just outside my property fence).

My confusion is that if all birds are protected , why is it that we can shoot pigeon/rook/crows on farmland.

Can someone please clarify?

thanks

Look up the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and read the conditions under the reference 'General Licence'.
