Just depends what part of the country you live in to see whether they are on the pest list then all you need is what they call a general licence and cull them under the certain criteria. General licences can be found on a link BASC site and then be printed off when you've found the correct one. While your on there you might aswell see what other pests you come across and print off as necessary. Take it along with you when you do the cull and along with the landowners permission you'll be OK.

Cull them when they are moulting, they can't fly away then.
