More than 29,000 people responded to an online survey set up by BASC to gather evidence in just four days. Of those, 81 per cent reported financial or economic loss.

The infographic shows that respondents spent 3.4 million days annually controlling pest birds under the general licences.

Ninety-nine per cent of respondents reported damage, loss or risk.

The survey fed into BASC’s official response to Defra.
