Yesterday, Thames Valley Police (Aylesbury Vale) posted this on Facebook:
I haven’t been able to find any follow-up information, e.g. whether the peregrine was x-rayed to confirm/rule out shooting and there isn’t an incident number or an appeal for information on the Thames Valley Police website.
Meanwhile, the local press are reporting this as a confirmed shooting. Eg. see this headline from the Bucks Free Press:
Wouldn’t it be good if there was a national standard on how to report suspected raptor persecution crimes, that every police force could follow? And a central location where these verified reports could be found?
