Rare bird’s nest destroyed in the Peak District

A REWARD of £1000 is on offer to information leading to the conviction of the person who destroyed a rare bird’s nest in the Peak District.

The money – offered by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds – comes after a gohawk nest and eggs, which were just days from hatching, were destroyed last week.

It is the latest in a long-running series of attacks on birds of prey in the Peak District. It leaves only one active goshawk nest in the entire Derwent Valley, which previously has held six pairs of these birds of prey.

The Derbyshire Constabulary is encouraging anyone with any information relating to this incident to contact the Police immediately on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
