Little Bustard shot

Leave a comment

Appalled to hear today that the Little Bustard present outside Nicosia for the last two weeks appears to have been shot by hunters. A photograph of a shot Little Bustard was seen and the Nicosia bird has not been seen for two days. No coincidence that most years there are reports of shot Little Bustard on the island but that prior to this recent record the last live bird seen was in 1979. Very sad and typical of the irresponsible attitude prevalent among so many local hunters.
