Spring hunting of turtle dove in Malta
Despite European legislation and a European population decline of -30% in the last 15 years (!), the Maltese government has once again given in to the hunting lobby and allowed spring hunting of Turtle Dove. From today until the end of the month, the total of 8,041 registered hunters are allowed to kill 1,500 migrating turtle doves. In addition to the turtle dove, 2,400 quail are also now open for spring shooting.
