The licence allows 300 ravens to be culled to in a bid protect wading birds

A group of gamekeepers and landowners has temporarily suspended the cull of 300 ravens following an investigation into the methodology underpinning the licence approval.

In April, Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) issued a licence to the Strathbraan Community Collaboration for Waders (SCCW) to control ravens in a bid to reduce impacts on nesting waders, which are in marked decline nationally. The five-year licence applies to an area of Perthshire, from Loch Tay to the outskirts of Perth and was supported by the Scottish Gamekeepers Association with technical advice provided by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust.
