CYPRUS: The Famagusta district of Cyprus is seen as the worst in the Mediterranean area for the mean estimated number of illegally killed birds each year.

Geographically, Cyprus is a key stopover location for many migratory birds on their route across the sea.

Unfortunately, birds tend to concentrate in particular parts of the island when leaving or arriving on migration, thus making things easier for those engaged in illegal killing.

Laws forbidding trapping have been in place since 1974, but these are frequently flouted.

Audio equipment is used, illegally, to broadcast birdsong and attract birds to trapping locations.

Many birds are illegally sold as ‘delicacies’ for consumption – in particular, blackcap , song thrush, lesser whitethroat and common chiffchaff.

The Akrotiri and Dhekelia areas are controlled as British military bases by the UK.

BirdLife Cyprus finalised a National Strategic Action Plan to tackle the illegal killing of birds, which was also adopted by the British Sovereign Base Areas.

GREECE: The mean estimated number of illegally killed birds each year in Greece exceeds 704,000.

On average, more than five birds are reported to be illegally killed each year for every square kilometre.

Presently, of the 345 species of birds assessed in Greece, 32 per cent of species are being killed illegally in significant numbers.

Greece is among the three worst countries for the illegal killing of European turtle dove.

Moreover, European goldfinch, European serin, European greenfinch and greater short-toed lark are caught in large numbers to be illegally sold as cagebirds.

Greece is also among the top three countries that illegally kill Dalmatian pelican.


What a pile of poo! Pure propaganda word for word!

Unsubstantiated rubbish that tries to instill hatred for foreigners by using the word "illegall(y)" so many times (in nearly every single sentence!) that it might as well sew the eyelids of British people shut so that they cannot see how much they themselves harm wildlife ...Oh wait, didn't the Brits actually sew the eyelids of birds together? Poor falcons! :(

So what is factually incorrect about the article in particular about the assertions that what is happening is illegal?

As CBBB said previously, I too wouldn't mind knowing their methodology in the numbers which they present as fact.

Whilst I disagree with the slaughter of wild birds in Cyprus, I can't help thinking that the article is a load of hyperbole!

I for one don't deny the little bird problem we have in CY but it's British double standards that annoy...

These organizations need to show the methodology they used for their survey. Too many times, the media try to pass on dubious sensationalism as fact.

I am not convinced as to the scale of the problem.

I am not saying illegal hunting is not occurring in Cyprus. I am sure there is a problem of some scale, but things need to be put into perspective.

My family is pretty big on hunting and even have a Gun Business in Paphos, so I am pretty sure I would have seen some evidence of these illegal activities from the clientele but didn't.

Here BTW is the paper - http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/conl.12196/epdf. This might answer the question about methodology
