G’day,

Seems a bit drastic. What damage do they cause?

Here in Australia we have conflicts with native parrots, maybe more so outside of the cities though. I’ve read many newspaper reports about the problems, but I did not keep any to post here.

Has the UK government taken any advice from Australia?

sincerely,

Tim Daley
