EU countries open hunting season
Despite dramatic declines in population numbers, many EU countries will be reopening the hunt for migratory birds for the pot in the coming days. On the shooting list are the turtle dove, Germany's bird of the year 2020, and many other endangered species that will move to their wintering grounds in autumn. Around 52 million wild birds are legally killed by hunters across Europe every year, according to the Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS).
