Interesting isn’t it. Flimsy evidence (&speed) etc for issuing licences to kill stuff, but mountains of evidence (& snail pace) needed for restrictions on general licences etc @nature_scot @RaptorPersScot
An interesting decision, you would think clear reasons given why a call licence was issued by @nature_scot for Beavers. Sometimes they have been to quick to issue licences, or do so on basis of flimsy evidence! (Think Raven & Straathbraan) treesforlife.org.uk/legal-wi…

Breaking news – new hope for beavers in Scotland! Following our court challenge to the Scottish Government, licensed beaver killings must halt and all previous beaver killings authorised by NatureScot have been deemed unlawful. Read the full story here: treesforlife.org.uk/legal-wi…

Extremely sad news for our community that one of our chicks, Reiver, won't be making her way back home to us again.
⚠️Another hen harrier has disappeared in suspicious circumstances - this time a Scottish bird, Reiver, tagged at Langholm. Her tag sent its final transmission from an area dominated by driven grouse moors in Northumberland. Licensing now. Read the blog: community.rspb.org.uk/ourwor…

Shocking intimidatory behaviour - and they have guns! Wonder what they're afraid you might see or photograph?

Business as usual on grouse moors today. No climate emergency. All so a few people can indulge in a niche sport of killing birds for fun. View looking south from the Black Isle. COP (out) 26. Stop burning our uplands. @MairiMcAllan @MairiGougeon @NicolaSturgeon @lornaslater
