Reports www.hertsad.co.uk.

Rural and wildlife officer, sergeant Jamie Bartlett, said: “It is really sad that this buzzard’s dependants may not be able to fend for themselves and may have died as a result of their mother being shot. She did not die instantly, she may have flown a short distance (perhaps up to 300m) from where she had been shot, probably towards a nearby nest containing her young.”

Thats a shame, the only pleasure of my journey to work is spotting buzzards cruising above the motorway. I believe they have been a conservation success in the UK.
