Welsh general licences for bird control unchanged for 2023

National Resources Wales (NRW) has published the new 2023 General Licences for bird control.

Welsh general licences for bird control unchanged for 2023

The 2023 licences remain unchanged from those published in July 2022 following the outcome of NRW's Wild Bird Review.  

Key documents relating to the review of General Licences are still available on Wild Bird Review consultation page (you’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page to view the documents) and will continue to be so till the end of the year: 

The licences are issued in HTML format but the option is available to print as hardcopies or to a PDF format which can be downloaded and saved onto a device.

Please note however that the licences include a number of web links which may not work properly from PDF versions. 

All licences can be found here.
