In the face of continued uncertainty over the UK’s membership of the EU, it has been difficult to obtain clear advice from the government concerning arrangements for exhibiting birds in EU countries outside the UK.

Video footage showing the chase for an owl killer has been released by the RSPB, following a successful court case.
