Raptor death toll increases again
THE number of dead raptors found in Ross-shire has increased again after two further red kites were found.
It takes the current total to 22, with 16 red kites and six buzzards found poisoned.
It is understood however that these are not fresh deaths and the birds have been dead for some time.
The raptors have all been found within a two-square mile area near Conon Bridge, around Conon Brae, Balvail, Leanaig, and Alcaig.
