Post BREXIT News

It appears that any birds that are Annex A,B,C on the CITES Species+ website will require an Export licence (£63) and you will need to obtain an Import Licence.

They will then have to go by special courier service to ensure all documentation is processed. The cost of this I am yet to find out.

This will mean that I am unlikely to be shipping Annex A,B,C species to the EU unless under special request. Howvere costs are likely to make this prohibitive.

Taxidermy - Staffs Spring Show 2017

After not doing either of my x2 regular shows this year, all is looking good for a return in March 2017 for the Spring show.

I hope to have a nice selection of birds for sale on the day, and as usual will be interested in any birds you may have for me. BUT please give me a call well before the show and let me know what you have so that I am prepared.

I will also be taking and completed commissions.

Hope to see you there.
