Nature officials grant licences to shoot some of Britain’s most endangered birds

Hello, firstly I apologise if this is a topic already started, I had a look but couldn't find anything.

I wanted to know what everyone thought about this and also where the RSPB stands

Personally I'm appalled...I can't quite fathom how this has happened and I'm really concerned for the red list birds.

I've popped a couple of links on for you and look forward to reading any replies
