    I wondered what had happened about this after the public outrage.
    No doubt if this is the case it will be hushed up.I know that if a keeper or a farmer had done it the papers would have had a field day by now

    As far as I can recall, they ALWAYS name the poisons used. Not this time. I wonder why?

    They would certainly have made an arrest by now.
    Somebody had already come up with the point that no foxes,hoodies etc have been picked up.Certainly strange

    Its also of note that laboratory results indicating 'presence of poisons' often gets transmuted by certain organisations into 'illegally poisoned' - especially in the case of something like difenacoum or bromodialome which are very commonly found in raptors, but at very low levels that do not indicate deliberate poisoning or persecution.

    I'd thought it was strange that they were getting picked up over a fairly wide area and recall someone had mentioned a feeding station as a possible source of the poison.

    How many feeding stations are in the area and who runs them?

    Is this not the stage where our representative bodies should be pushing for more information and clarification?

    While I'm I'm no way condoning illegal poisoning, it would be a useful opportunity to make the public aware that raptor deaths can occur for a variety of reasons, not just at the hands of big bad gamekeepers.
