Schedule 1 Licensing
********************* PLEASE REMEMBER *********************
Kingfishers and Barn Owls are just two of the relatively uncommon species afforded the highest degree of legal protection under Schedule 1 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. If you “intentionally or recklessly” disturb a Kingfisher, Barn Owl or any other bird listed in Schedule 1 whilst trying to photograph it “in, on, at or near” the nest or whilst it has dependent young, and without the necessary Licence from Natural England (or other licensing authority), you may be committing a criminal offence punishable by a fine of up to £5,000 and/or a prison sentence of up to 6 months.
Other wildlife and habitats are protected from disturbance also. Where we believe protected species or habitats have been disturbed we reserve the right to refuse entry to the competition and if appropriate the authorities will be notified. You can find the full list of wildlife protection here: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1981/69/contents
