In response to the video footage released today by Police Scotland of what appears to be an attempt to target a goshawk nest in Strathdon, the Cairngorms National Park Authority released the following statement:

“We are extremely disappointed and frustrated to see what appears to be a clear attempt to target a protected raptor species in the Cairngorms National Park. The Cairngorms should be one of the best places in Scotland for raptors. We urge anyone with information about this incident to contact the police as a matter of urgency.”
