Bag limit for finches already exploited by poachers
Permits for ´supersize-trapping-sites´ criticised

The Committee Against Bird Slaughter CABS has criticised the opening of the bird trapping season next Monday as a clear breach of the EU´s Birds Directive. The NGO announced that it will monitor the situation in the field with two teams until December. The volunteers will document the amount and impact of trapping on the countryside as well as report any misuse to the police.
