Two injured birds, both protected species, handed over to BirdLife

BirdLife stated that members of the public yesterday picked up two protected species which has been injured by shots. This despite the fact that the spring hunting season for quail opened today.

It was stated that a Marsh Harrier was found in Imgarr, with shotgun injuries in its right wing, and a Yellow-Legged Gull was recovered at Tas-Safra, also with injuries to its right wing, which a veterinarian confirmed had been caused by shots.

BirdLife stated that with the addition of these two birds, the number of birds injured through illegal hunting during this year has gone up to 22.
