Black headed gulls: licence for retailers and restaurateurs to sell eggs

Get a general licence to sell black-headed gull eggs for human consumption if you're a retailer or restaurateur (licence GL23).



This licence lets you sell the eggs of black-headed gulls (Chroicocephalus ridibundus) if you’re a retailer or restaurateur.

You must ensure the eggs are lawfully collected and you must have documentation to prove it.

You can sell the eggs (including hiring, bartering and exchanging) and advertise that the eggs are for sale.

You can’t sell eggs after 30 June in any year.

You don’t need to apply for this general licence but you must meet its conditions and follow its instructions.
