    ‘An outrageous proposal by the Catalan government could see British nesting birds being illegally hunted as they pass through north-east Spain during their spring and autumn migrations.

    The RSPB, working with SEO – its Spanish BirdLife International partner – is fighting the regional government proposal that would permit Catalonian hunters to use the so-called traditional practice of luring songbirds, by playing their songs, to branches covered in glue. Once caught, the birds are then ‘plucked’ like fruit from the trees. Many birds suffer horrific injuries, such as losing legs, before being killed.’
