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.
A fully certified Emergency First Aid at Work Course, specifically aimed at Range Officers or anybody else involved with the Shooting Community, will be held at Tunbridge Wells Target Shooting Club on Saturday 29th June.

I also remember one year in Dumfries (can’t be that long ago, maybe five years or so), the wind was blowing in on the back of the firing point during the Haig and it was lashing rain.
