Reward doubled for info on peregrine poisoning at Clee Hill, Shropshire

Peregrine male poisoned at Cleehill 2015 Shorrock1 cropThe reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for poisoning a peregrine at Clee Hill, Shropshire has been doubled.

The male peregrine was found dead in a quarry on 15th June 2015 (see here). This is a notorious raptor persecution blackspot: two peregrines were poisoned there in 2010 and another one in 2011. All four peregrines (including the latest victim) were poisoned with Diazinon.

A generous donor has contributed to the original reward offered by the Shropshire Peregrine Group and the RSPB, and the reward currently stands at £2000.

If you have any information about this crime please call the police on 101 quoting reference #6495 of 15/6/2015.

  1. £2000, while a very generous gesture on behalf of the donor, just is not enough for a location like that. It won’t even cover the costs of moving once the local mafia runs any informant out of town on a rail. Which group is the main suspect, no names obviously, but the general affiliation. I’ve got 50pence split on a farmer or a twitcher who thinks the raptors are taking the song birds.
