What they are saying about the General Licences (2)
Natural England is hiding from the media and hasn’t given a single interview about the general licences as far as I can see.
I’ve just been on Farming Today talking about this subject – as was Minette Batters – and I expressed sympathy for land managers over the position they are in thanks to Natural England’s handling of the matter.
Later this morning – after 0830 – I may be on Today on Radio 4.
Daily Telegraph – Farmers banned from shooting birds on their land after Natural England backs down in face of Chris Packham challenge – Chris is quoted.
Birdguides – Natural England forced to revoke General Licences
Farmers Guardian – NE stops farmers from shooting crows and pigeons to protect crops includes more criticism of Natural England and a quote from George Dunn where he says that he thought that Wild Justice’s challenge to the General Licences was ‘a stab in the dark’.
