Malta in the spring is the worst killing ground for migratory birds anywhere in the world. They have "derogated" EU Law that bans this abomination. Their shooters delight in killing rare and threatened birds: quail, turtle doves and raptors. They have been seen shooting Montagu's Harrier when at rest on the ground.
These shooters have bombed the offices of Birdlife Malta, attack conservationists regularly and collude wiot hte hjpolice to disrupt anti-hunting activity.
Tourism is a major industry and huge source of revenue: hit them where it hurts - don't go and encourage others not to.
