Police in Malta confiscate rare waders


The Maltese police are investigating several cases of illegal wader trapping reported by our teams. Seven protected waders used as live decoys for large collapsible nets in the south of the island have been seized. The birds - Wood Sandpiper, Wood Sandpiper, Sickle Sandpiper, Dunlin and Little Ringed Plover - have been released into the wild. A few weeks ago, committee staff also reported two people who had trapped stilt sandpipers in a field south of Mgarr.
