Illegal persecution of raptors in the UK is a huge and growing problem threatening to drive the likes of Goshawks, Hen Harriers etc. into extinction across large parts of their range. Unfortunatly the laws concerning such crimes are not treated with the required seriousness by the judicery in many cases :(
