Bird crime is rising across the south, the RSPB has revealed.
The organisation says persecution of British birds is on the increase across the region – with its investigations unit dealing with 44 incidents in 2012 compared with 40 in 2011.
Among the incidents include the poisoning of two buzzards in Hampshire.
They were poisoned with the banned pesticide Alphachloralose, which has been illegal since 2008.
Investigations into the poisonings are still ongoing and the RSPB was unable to confirm the area of the county the crimes took place.
