Corvid Control

1000-1300 hrs

This half-day course is particularly relevant for landowners, managers and keepers in today’s ever-changing political climate in Scotland, and the need to have a clear paper trail in place to demonstrate all due diligence has been exercised to help prevent malpractice.

An overview will be given by the GWCT’s Hugo Straker on the WANE Act and VL prior to a detailed, well-illustrated and practical session on the legal and best practice aspects of corvid control, and the use of Larsen traps, Larsen “mates” and multi-catch crow cages. The crow control session is even more pertinent now that new General Licences have been issued for 2018. A short written test will conclude the session, and successful candidates will receive a GWCT certificate (important for the “due diligence” paper trail).

This course costs £72. If taken with the afternoon session on tunnel trapping, the discounted price for both modules is £120.

Tunnel Trapping

1330-1600 hrs

This half-day course addresses all legal aspects and best practice. The session involves a detailed illustrated presentation and outside practical demonstration. Careful attention will be given to the legal framework; trap preparation; tunnel design to help ensure clean, humane kills; non-target avoidance; site selection; choice of methods; and developments within the Spring Traps Approval Order and likely changes in legislation. A short written test will conclude the session and successful candidates will receive a GWCT certificate.

This course costs £72 inc VAT. If taken with the morning session on corvid control, the discounted price for both modules is £120.
