Hi all

Does the general licence 41 entitle our fishing club to remove the eggs of Canada goose this time of year to keep their numbers under control

Thanks

GL42 Covers this, yes you can take eggs  or destroy the nest of Canada Geese (see table 1,of GL42 ).....usually by Landowner, or with permission of.

Make sure they are not Grey Lag.

they are just about hatching now

 

You are quite right, but the member was asking if it was legal, which GL42 confirms it is.

Personally, i would have taken out adult birds before the breeding season commenced.

Can oil the eggs so they don’t hatch. 
 

Some of the biggest ‘conservation’ trusts do just that, although don’t advertise it as they say it’s cruel to control the numbers by shooting 👀

Bit late now to oil. And if the OP takes the eggs they may end up with pet geese
