From BirdLife:

Europe takes action against Malta’s spring shooting

28-06-2006

BirdLife has welcomed the decision taken today by the European Commission to open a legal infringement procedure against the Maltese government for allowing the spring hunting of European Turtle-doves Streptopelia turtur and Common Quails Coturnix coturnix.

This infringement of the Birds Directive has continued to take place in Malta since its accession to the European Union in 2004.
