In conversation with Ian Thomson, Head of Investigations at RSPB Scotland

Jimmi Hill of charity Raptor Aid has recorded a series of fascinating interviews with various raptor experts during the lockdown period, all of them archived and available to watch for free (find Raptor Aid on Facebook and click on ‘videos’ in the left hand column).

One of the early ones was with Ian Thomson, Head of Investigations at RSPB Scotland. If you want a well-informed yet understated masterclass on the ins and outs of raptor persecution in Scotland, you should really watch this.

    The interview is an immensely interesting listen. I intended to listen to it in stages because I had other things planned for this morning. However, having commenced listening I could not stop until the end.

    An amazing interview presenting clearly and succinctly the issues of wildlife crime.Thank you Ian for all you do. If only you had a team of 500! Mind you Scottish Government could send you reinforcements by allowing SSPCA to investigate widlife crime.

      If only ……………. SG is more likely to suggest that they will enlist a few gamekeepers to lend a hand.
