Raptor Persecution Petition at the Scottish Parliament

Postby Alex Shepherd » Thu Oct 27, 2016 4:55 pm

Today the Scottish Parliament Public Petitions Committee heard evidence from the RSPB and Raptor Group representatives about persecution of birds of prey, primarily on land used for driven grouse shooting. The link below should start the video from Scottish Parliament TV at 40 minutes in and continues for 40 minutes

The report below was published today on Red Kite populations in North Scotland, it doesn't make for good reading.
