I found the following on the Scottish BBC news site this evening.....
Birds of prey found dead in Ross-shire in the Highlands earlier this year were most likely not targeted deliberately, police have said.
More than 20 raptors were discovered at various locations in March and April.
Police Scotland confirmed that 16 of them - 12 red kites and four buzzards - were probably accidentally killed by pest control measures.
A reward is being offered for witnesses or further information which could help with the ongoing inquiry.
A criminal investigation into the deaths remains ongoing.
