Bird trapping is illegal in the European Union, but still occurs in several Member States. BirdLife Cyprus and RSPB have been monitoring this activity in Cyprus for over a decade. BTO's impartiality and reputation for robust science led to staff members Ali Johnston and Nick Moran being invited to a workshop in Cyprus to discuss the monitoring protocol. The whole issue was the focus of a recent feature for Nature.
