    Q16: Can I shoot the birds in my garden?

    In order to shoot birds in your garden you would require a licence from the Department for Food Environment and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). The licence is only granted for specific purposes and there are many different types of licences. Please see the website for DEFRA (in related information) for a full explanation of these licences.
