BirdLife Cyprus has released its newest report on illegal bird trapping with data gathered between 31 Aug and 8 Nov 2010, showing a dramatic rise – a 75% increase in mist net use and an 89% increase in limestick setting compared with 2009 levels. While trapping levels remain lower than in the 1990s, they have been on an alarming upward trend for four years which points toward an impending ecological disaster. For more info I interviewed Martin Hellicar of BirdLife Cyprus for a podcast in October last year.
