    Thank you @JennyJ :). Hopefully the publicity seems to have had some effect. I know at a development near me, protesters started to peacefully take some down, and someone from the building site helped them.

    Is there a protest form to stop France trapping thrushes and other birds?

    Speaking of such things; I love the Trump headlines this morning.

    "Mr Mueller's report says: "While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

    Trump: "Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!"

    The word is spreading, sadly too late for one little dunnock - and who knows how many others ?

    It was banned under EU law but the Maltese government allowed it to continue, then last year the European courts enforced the ban. It will continue illegally of course due to the corruption of Maltese police etc. The spring hunt of turtle doves still goes on of course with all the associated illegal activities.
