    Having worked for some time in the west of scotland, especially around the Glasgow area, its no surprice to me that these beautiful birds have been poisoned. The whole place is renound for its pigeon fanciers, there are pigeon lofts dotted all around the schemes of east glasgow.

    It does’nt take a rocket scientist to work out the type of folk would poison the Peregrines in that area !
