Thread: High volume Turtle Dove shooting?

  1. #1

    High volume Turtle Dove shooting?

    I'm no expert which is why I am asking the question,

    Are Turtle Doves not in decline?

    Looks like a UK based company offering shooting,

    I've noticed on twitter, many folk trying to name and shame sporting agents, turtle doves are in decline in the UK, not sure what the score is abroad. I will try and find out.

    high volume dove shooting takes place all over the world where they are a pest.
    2000 bird days are not uncommon in some places.

    I read an article somewhere not that long ago

    I'm trying to do a bit of fact finding. Are they not migratory? Is there anything to suggest that heavy shooting in Serbia might have a knock on effect elsewhere? (talking specifically about african turtle doves)

    Never seen one in UK, one once in central France 10 years ago.

    A bit more interesting info here.

    Saw this. It blames the 62% decline on farming practices and shooting in the mediterranean. Just wondering if this reason (shooting) is agreed with and what peoples feeling are on it?
