It makes me very frustrated to know that birds of prey are being persecuted just for being in their natural environment and habitat.
The bird in particular that is under the most threat by the shooting community is the hen harrier, and the peregrine falcon sees quite a bit of persecution as well, mainly on grouse moors.
It’s not something that people run into a lot, so I think it is important that we try to teach people and help them understand that this is going on and it shouldn’t be.
If you find a dead bird of prey, it's important to report it as you never know what could have caused it to die.
