I know this is not the normal run of the mill question for this site, but!
I have been asked by a local parish council to remove a number of peacocks/peahens from a local village. These birds would be relocated at locations through out the region. Sites have already been selected if green light is given.
1. Am I legally allowed to capture these birds if on private land as these birds are feral.
2. Do i need any special licences to capture and release these birds, if so where do I get them from.
3. Who would be the best people to speak too to make sure that I am 100% legal
4. Any other legal issues that I should be made aware of?
My first thoughts on Poc would be DEFRA Natural England and the RSPB
Any information would be gratefully received.
