The haul included Eurasian skylarks, Calandra larks, red throated pipits, bluethroats, European goldfinches, fieldfares, mistle thrushes, reed buntings and white wagtails. None of them are listed as endangered, but it is illegal to hunt them in Europe as the birds are protected under international treaties, EU and national legislation.
