Redwing, you asked for proof of what I said because you didn't believe it, so there you go.
For whatever reason the RSPB cull birds, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds still cull birds.
See original post
I have absolutely no problem with this ... we humans feed birds, either intentionally or with our huge landfill sites full of waste which upsets the natural balance, increasing the numbers of some species which then prey upon other species. We humans also overfish the seas in many areas which results in the starvation of many other species as they cannot feed their young. It's therefore important that we try to protect the threatened species from predation.
We also release species into the wild which do not fit naturally into our ecosystem and have to be managed. This is the same for birds and mammals as it is for plants like Himalayan Balsam, Giant Hogweed and Rhodondendron.
As long as the culling and control is done in a measured way and humanely then I have absolutely no problem with it ... in fact, I applaud it.
We are not living in the Garden of Eden ........ we bu$$ered that up a long time ago and there's no going back.
