    Shocking statistics show that birds of prey poisonings are still a serious issue in Scotland

    New figures have revealed a shocking rise in the number of birds of prey being poisoned by chemicals in Scotland. The statistics come from the Partnership for Action against Wildlife Crime in Scotland (PAWC) and show that 28 birds of prey were poisoned in 2010. 132 birds of prey have been deliberately killed in the last 5 years in Scotland. Furthermore, many more poisonings are likely to have gone unreported in rural areas. Some of the victims include golden eagles, red kites and sea eagles – despite the best efforts of campaigners and local government to crack down on the disturbing problem.
