英國的獵鳥活動,令大量鉛子彈散落郊野。每年有四十萬野鳥因誤食鉛子彈而中毒,約十萬隻因此而死亡。當中包瀕危的美洲潛鴨、灰山鶉等。

wild fowling in UK is causing large amount of lead pellets discarded in the countryside. each year, 400,000 wildfowl suffer from lead poisoning after they mis-swallow these pellets, and around 100,000 of them would die. endangered species like red-headed duck, grey partridge and other birds are threatened by these lead pellets.
