“Natural England revokes general licences for bird control

Natural England has announced that its three general licences for the control of 16 bird species, including corvids and pigeons, will be revoked on 25th April 2019. Its press release (https://www.gov.uk/government/news/general-licences-for-bird-control-major-changes-to-licensing-requirements) states

‘Natural England is working at pace to put in place over the next few weeks alternative measures to allow lawful control of these bird species to continue where necessary. In the meantime, once the licences have been revoked and until new licences are issued, anyone needing to control one of these 16 bird species where there is no reasonable non-lethal alternative will need to apply for an individual licence’.”
