Our Birds and Malta

Because it’s so important, and because it affects us here in Wicklow, here is the second bulletin from Chris Packham which went out last night. Remember, these birds are not Maltese birds, they are birds that migrate over Malta before arriving in their nesting grounds in northern Europe, including here in Wicklow which is probably why Maltese ‘hunters’ (poachers) don’t care. Our birds are being killed for kicks by a small number of weirdoes in Malta, but if you watch this video you will see there is almost certainly corruption involved in the failure of Malta to prevent this huge crime against European nature. It’s a shame because Malta could be making millions, perhaps even billions, from spring and autumn wildlife tourists.
