Raptor debate in the news again

raptorRPRA General Manager, Stewart Wardrop, was interviewed on BBC Radio 5 Live on Monday morning to debate the loss of racing pigeons to raptors. A copy of the interview will be available via the BBC i-player shortly.

Local BBC radio stations later picked up the story, and interviews have been recorded with BBC Radio Birmingham and BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester.  A further interview is planned with BBC Radio Shropshire (home of the BHW).

Meanwhile, an article also ran in the Sunday Observer which can be seen here.
