Rise in discovery of dead raptors in the Highlands

Police investigating the deaths of birds and prey in Ross-shire and the Black Isle have said another two dead red kites have been found.

This brings the total of dead raptors discovered since March to 22 – 16 red kites and six buzzards.

Tests have so far confirmed that 12 of the birds were poisoned.

A reward for information leading to a prosecution has been added to by donations from RSPB Scotland, landowners, farmers and the public.
