SNH issues licences to kill Swift & Robins

I couldn't believe it when I came across an article where the Scottish Natural Heritage have issued licences to kill Robins, Swifts, Skylark, Barn Owls and Cormorants among many others, some on the Red list - Birds of Conservation Concern 4.

 They are already under pressure to stop the 5 year mass Raven cull in Perthshire and this is the last straw.

more details

Red listed birds include House Sparrow, Starling, Grey Partridge, Skylark, Herring Gull (for full list)

The Red list has grown by 15 species since 2009

Swift are on the Amber list yet they have issued a licence to kill an indefinite numbers and why 5 licences for Robin

A SNH spokeswomen said ``We were confident that all activities carried out under these licences do not affect the conservation status of any of our native species''
