Nest investment

Natural England has revealed it has issued a licence to a gamekeeper to allow him to remove four buzzard nests.

The organisation released a document stating that it had given advice on non-lethal methods of deterring the buzzards, which included scaring, diversionary feeding and habitat improvement, but the birds continued to prey on the small-scale gamekeeper’s game bird population. Because of this, the keeper’s application to carry out lethal control and nest destruction was partially granted, enabling him to remove the four local nests. No lethal control licence was issued.
