Catherine Bearder,  the Chair of the MEPs For Wildlife Group, has written a letter to Michael Fallon MP, the Secretary of State for Defence regarding the killing of songbirds on a British military base in Cyprus.

Over 800,000 songbirds were illegally trapped and killed last Autumn according to the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

These creatures are being killed by illicit criminal gangs who profit from selling these birds on the black market.

Please see the letter that was sent to Mr Fallon.
