Just a reminder on Jays

If you go back to May 2019 you will find that I quoted from the BTO’s Andy Clement’s blog at the time as follows;

… there may be insufficient scientific evidence to merit the inclusion of Jay on the licence list in order to conserve birds …


And yet, the Jay is still listed by DEFRA on the proposed 2021 general licences.

I’ll be able to tell you more about NRW’s position on culling Jayes soon.
