Crows (Corvidae) – (Rook, Carrion Crow, Hooded Crow, Jackdaw, Magpie, Jay, Raven)
These licences authorise the use of lethal control methods in specific circumstances to control numbers of listed birds. The crow family are capable of causing serious damage to growing crops for large scale farms as well as gardeners and allotments with large flocks capable of stripping more than 50% of a seeded field before the crop even has a chance to grow above ankle height.
This can cause significant financial impact to those it affects. They are also a carnivorous species with evidence of them raiding the nests of smaller and song birds to steal eggs and young chicks to eat.
