Defra - Wild Birds General Licence Survey - A Call for Action

It is crucial that as many people as possible complete Defra's survey in order to ensure that future licences are fit for purpose and feature appropriate species. Your contributions can help give Defra the information they need to improve this system.

Take the survey as an individual as the RSPB will be submitting a formal response - Feel free to use our key points, but remember it is you they want to hear from.

** You do not need to answer all the questions. Many will not be relevant.
