For some; but not for birds of prey - the criminals involved in raptor killing don't have any scruples about the law, whether raptor protection law or coronavirus restriction law, so will take maximum use of the reduced obverver coverage to kill raptors.

Exactly the same happened in the foot & mouth outbreak a few years ago; a nascent Osprey population prospecting rivers in Northumbs all vanished during that closure period.
