We have been informed lately of several incidents of illegal bird trapping in Spain. Several incidents are involving youngsters trying to catch Goldfinches in fact. Perhaps they are seeing it as a way to make money if they are out of work. We do know how difficult it is for the young when there are over 56% out of work, but they should not be doing it.

It is illegal and is only permitted in the months of September and October and only then with a license. You are perfectly within your rights to stop them and tell them you will call the Guardia Civil or Seprona. If you see them in the next two months then legally you can ask to see their licenses.

Hi Brenda
Were these incidents local, i.e Andalucia? I have seen youngsters with small passerines before, but not for some years. It would be a shame if it's happening again.

Thanks; that's a bit depressing. Think I'll ask (carefully) around here to see if anyone has seen anything similar....
