Electronic bird callers are illegal and cannot be used for trapping or hunting of birds. Unfortunately the use of such callers is widely abused and goes on unabated across Malta and Gozo. It is also detrimental to all those who live by the countryside or in the outskirts of our villages.
Have you encountered such calls in the countryside recently?
If you did, please fill in this form and provide us with all information requested so that we can take action. We will treat personal details with confidentiality.
Here is an example of an illegal electronic call for Golden Plover: http://bit.ly/GoldenPloverCall
