Good afternoon Mr Avery
Many thanks for your enquiry.
In terms of the `culling of lesser Black-backed Gull in the Bowland Fells SSSI this year`, there is an ongoing investigation taking place so we cannot comment further until our investigations are concluded.
Thank you once again for your enquiry.

So, how long should I wait before asking again?
NE have described the investigation as ‘our investigations’ though – that’s a snippet of information I suppose.
