An anonymous donor, so concerned about the reported mass poisoning of 12 red kites and 4 buzzards in Ross-shire, has come forward and increased the value of the reward for information to £10,000.
He/she has added an extra £5K to the £5K reward already put up by RSPB Scotland.
The reward is offered to anyone who provides information leading to a successful conviction.
£10,000 is a lot of money. Let’s hope it will prompt someone to go and talk to the police. If you’re that person, dial 101 and ask to be put through to Dingwall Police Station.
The photo shows dead red kite ‘F8’, one of the 16 victims (and there may yet be more corpses to be recovered).
