Police in Bristol are appealing for information after a young peregrine was found injured by the side of the road in Queen Charlton, near Keynsham earlier this month. An x-ray revealed the bird had been shot.
The bird, which had been ringed as a chick in July, is now in the care of a local rehabilitation expert.
