Cut and paste follows

"All wild birds, their nests and eggs are protected by The Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981. However, 12 species are recognised by DEFRA (Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) as nuisance birds. These species can be controlled and destroyed by humane methods under DEFRA General Licence.

Nuisance birds include: feral pigeons, woodpigeons, seagulls and canada geese."

More: -

"it is an offence to discharge an airgun, within 50 feet of the centre of any highway. This includes roads, bridle-paths, public footpaths and even your garden should it fall with in that 50 meter radious. The offence is complete if a member of the public is injured, endangered or even just alarmed by the incident."

"The pellet must not leave your property" - not so confident of the source for this one.

I have been told that an airgun is no use against wood pigeons.

Since I have a public road one side of my garden and a right of way the other, that stuffs the firearms option totally, even if I wanted to take out a licence (which I don't)

Taking up archery won't help: hunting bow and arrow is illegal in the UK, dammit.

So traps and netting are the only option. I had a flock of 200 of the damn things in the field opposite a few days ago.

I wouldn't bother about them but I do want to grow Brassicas!

Thanks for all that Richard. I did understand what you had said.

However, nobody has said if you put em in the black, blue or green rubbish bins.

My heart goes out to you folks in the UK. You don't have a fighting chance should tyranny and further oppression come down on you. But that is thread drift. If your little pop gun is accurate and you are a deadeye shot, any head shot should do the trick. Hey, do they let you have bows and arrows over there? Wrist rockets? Slingshots?

If not you can frame a greehouse from PVC pipe and put in raised beds. Do they let you have PVC pipe? Glue? Sharp objects of any kind? Maybe you can get an MP to come and talk the birds to death.

You could try one of these hawk kites or take up falconry.

Wolfhound person,

Who told you an air gun is no use for woodies is talking out of their Ar5e. In the back garden, it is the ideal weapon for them, and no licence required. Just do not shoot over your boundry fence, the coppers would not like it. Other than that, shoot away if the birds are a problem.

With regards to this thread, the finest way not to have woodies in your garden is not to buy a house in the Country - end of.

Slag - I appreciate your sentiment, particularly as my feeling that the only politician who does not lie is a dead one grows daily, but in 1792 (ish) the US army walked all over quite a sizeable local resistance to central government (the whisky tax rebellion), and in those days there was no huge disparity between the projectile firearms available to the respective protagonists. Anyone in the USA who thinks that even collectors of assault rifles and maybe rockets and tanks stand an earthly chance against the government and industrial-military-complex that invented "shock and awe" (if they got serious) is a total fantasist.

Conversely, the theoretical unavailability of weapons parity is no bar to the success of guerilla terrorists with sufficient mass support (unless the central government is prepared to sanction massive collateral damage, which the UK government was not but, it seems, many third world governments are) as the history of Ireland proves.

Ah, the reason the rebellion didn't succeed was, they was all drunk and couldn't shoot straight! Otherwise, we'd been a whole sight better off today!

I kinda thought everyone would pick up on the fact that I only made the jibe in fun. We've got firearm threads a plenty, pros, cons and Procyons (to the stars!). No drift. Absurdity speaks for itself.
