Natural England is revoking three general licences for controlling certain wild birds as of Thursday 25th April 2019.

These licences (GL 04/05/06) cover 16 species of birds including several members of the crow family, canada goose, some gulls and pigeons.

The change follows a legal challenge to the way the licences have been issued, which could mean users who rely on them are not acting lawfully.
