One thought on “buzzard found poisoned on Gledfield Estate, nr Ardgay, Sutherland”
As a raptor lover who lives locally to this estate I was incensed when this happened right on my doorstep.
For the benefit of this blogs national readers, I would like to point out that it’s been well known for some time now locally who the responsible party was.
It was not as might be assumed by reading the above the estates gamekeeper, but in my opinion a poacher that the estate had had problems with previously trying to dent the gamekeepers reputation.
