Malta: 12 bird trappers caught already
On the Mediterranean island of Malta, our CABS teams have already found 12 illegal trapping sites in the last two weeks and reported them to the police. Eight trap nets have been confiscated and criminal proceedings have been initiated against the perpetrators. The officers have seized more than 90 birds - among them dozens of finches such as hawfinches and goldfinches, but also various waders, e.g. Mornell's plovers, as well as several quails and even ortolans.
