Moorland Association Response To RSPB Birdcrime 2017 Report

24th September 2018

Amanda Anderson, Director of the Moorland Association, said: “It is encouraging to see that the number of persecution incidents, both across the UK and in North Yorkshire specifically, continue to decline significantly. This is what we all want to see.”

“Any incident of bird of prey persecution is unacceptable and the full force of the law should be felt by those breaking it. “
