star this property answer text <p>Regular anti bird trapping operations have continued since autumn 2016. Between November 2016 and June 2017, 560 mist nets were removed from the Cape Pyla ranges as well as a significant quantity of other items of bird trapping paraphernalia. In May 2017, the Sovereign Base Areas (SBA) court in Dhekelia issued fines to 13 bird trappers, many of whom were caught in the act by hidden surveillance cameras on the Cape Pyla ranges; they were fined between €820 and €2,500 after their illegal activities were filmed by motion activated cameras. A further three accused bird trappers are due to be sentenced in the SBA court on 8 August, charged with the offences of large scale pursuit of wild birds.</p><p>The SBA Administration is constantly reviewing its plans to counter illegal bird trapping. As well as activities outlined above the SBA Police will use all lawful means to target individuals involved in bird trapping and that will include any criminal activity they may be involved in. We will work closely with colleagues in Cyprus Police to achieve this.</p><p>Most recently, soldiers from the 2nd Battalion Prince of Wales's Royal Regiment based in Dhekelia, successfully destroyed up to 1,500 metres of irrigation equipment over 11 acres of land on the Cape Pyla ranges during a night time operation. The irrigation, which is laid illegally by criminal bird trapping gangs, is used to promote the growth of invasive acacia bushes.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence continues to sustain and deliver multiple intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) programmes in line with our announcements during the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015. These capabilities enable us to build our understanding across the five domains of Space, Maritime, Land, Air and Cyber. We also continue to benefit from significant investment in our ability to share intelligence across Government and with key Allies.</p><p> </p><p>During 2016, two major ISTAR programmes sponsored by Joint Forces Command and now in delivery with the Royal Air Force received approval to proceed to the demonstration and manufacture phases of the acquisition cycle. The P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft will be operated from RAF Lossiemouth and enhance our ability to counter an increasing submarine threat. Protector will replace Reaper as the UK's armed remotely piloted air system (RPAS) capability and will be equipped with UK precision-guided weapons.</p><p> </p><p>Our Signals Intelligence capability has been enhanced by improvements to Royal Navy platforms and by the recent delivery of the third Airseeker aircraft.</p><p> </p><p>We have also learned much from the investment in our ability to fuse open source intelligence with more traditional sources, and our ability to analyse this increasing amount of data will be improved by further investment in data science capabilities.</p><p> </p><p>Finally, in order to ensure the UK remains one step ahead of our adversaries, we continue to invest in science and technology to develop new sensors and improve our ability to exploit information.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
