Scotland’s Bird of prey Killing Hot Spots Identified.

A map of Scotland detailing where birds of prey have been poisoned has been hailed as a significant step in the fight against wildlife crime. It is the first record of confirmed poisonings recognised by both the wildlife lobby and landowners, who have disputed the scale of the problem.

Areas within Midlothian, the Borders, the Highlands and South Lanarkshire are among those identified as “hot spots.”  The map was compiled for the Scottish Government for the period 2004-2008. Follow this link to read this story.
