The Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS), a German based action and operational society, has around 20 activists from all over Europe monitoring the migration of birds across Gozo and Malta. The teams will be on the islands until early May.
On its facebook page this afternoon, CABS gave words of praise for Malta in this current spring hunting seasons, saying, "all change in Malta, even though there is still much to do and hunting offences are frequently observed, we can't deny noting a significant improvement in the situation."
"Last night and this morning, the CABS teams across the islands did not observe a single shot against protected species. Last night we watched this Kestrel (photo) circle peacefully at Laferla Cross," said CABS
"This morning we watched the Kestrels, Marsh and Montagu Harriers leave the island unperturbed for Italy. We could hardly imagine such circumstances when we first started our Spring bird protection camps on Malta just 9 years ago."
