It doesn't cost anything to apply for a licence. However the only licences that are being granted are to preserve public health or public safety. You won't get one for a magpie on that basis so don't waste your time.

My understanding was that does licences would only be granted for the Protection of livestock. I'm pretty sure that they won't consider magpies to be a serious threat to livestock.

That was the original application form they released. But the flora and fauna license is for all conservation purposes, whether that's predation or plant damage.

Yeah, covers rooks, crows, jackdaws, jays, magpies, feral pigeons, lesser black-backed gulls and canada geese.

That's great news. I'm not doubting you but that is for protection of flora and fauna??

I have applied for several under preservation of health to remove herring gull nests but not heard anything back yet. 😣

Yeah, Herring gull and Greater black-backed gull licenses are going to take a while because they are committing to rush through the general license applications first. I also have an application in for Herring gull and Greater black-backed gull but because they aren't a species affected by the revoking of the general license they have put them to the bottom of the pile for some reason.
