Birds Committee insists on autumn trapping


The Ornis Committee approved FKNK’s proposal which suggests the Committee should recommend the application of a derogation from the Birds Directive so that trapping for golden plovers would be allowed during autumn.

In a statement, FKNK said that this is being done after the European Court found out that Malta did not apply a correct trapping derogative.

The Committee will recommend the Government a number of rules for autumn trapping.
