Good news indeed!  All makes an interesting read! So it was worth us doing our bit and sending our info in! Lets hope DEFRA listen to us practitioners more now going forward! Looks like releasing birds going to be ok for a while to! No wonder Avery's been rattled more lately! 😉 Never realised DEFRA's funding to monitor SSSI's etc had been slashed by so much!

Well done all who submitted evidence and BASC GWCT NGO etc!   

United We Stand!   NB

Agreed, on the key issues that face shooting, working together is the way forward. A pan organisational plan to ensure a positive future for sustainable shooting is one of BASC's strategic objectives.

Still lots to do over the coming months to ensure the licences due in August are suitable and robust to prevent further challenges but also deliver what is needed for conservation , prevent crop damage, prevent attacks on livestock and to protect human health etc.

Yes, well done to all who submitted information, DEFRA for acknowledging it and re-issuing the General Licences and to BASC and the other shooting organisations for their continuing work.:good:

We have further meetings with the relevant ministers in Wales, but if rooks are a problem on the farm you help control pests over then you can apply for an individual licence.  If you need help with this and are a BASC member contact our team on 01244 573019

I do hope NRW will be as accommodating and leave the Welsh GL as it is and not role over as they have a tendency to do.There are still discussions to be had with them,i.e.rooks,and I trust BASC will continue to advise them about the shortcomings of the license.

Will a new Environment Secretary make a difference?   Did he express any views about the GL fiasco last year?

George Eustace......I believe he is not anti shooting?

We must have members in Camborne and Redruth that would know?

Assuming Eustice is not a badger-hugger, the Derbyshire dairy farmers might be happier today.

Apparently he has consistently voted in favour of the badger cull!

I have just read the letter sent to NRW by wild Justice telling them that the general licence in Wales is illegal and that if they do not hear from them by 17th Feb.they will seek a judicial review.As the licences in Wales are nothing to do with DEFRA I fear the shooting,farming and the game keeping  communities will be shafted again.The Welsh government have wiped their hands of the licences and left all the decision making to NRW.I do hope the various organisations are putting pressure on NRW to tell the bullies from WJ they are wrong to target legitimate people in he Welsh countryside.

Actually, I have no time for NRW, but the Welsh Assembly Government have gone against NRW's advice and ruled with the cuddlies in the past.
