Fowl play suspects 'shamed'.

AN MSP is calling for landowners and gamekeepers who kill rare birds of prey in Scotland to protect their livestock to be "named and shamed".

Sarah Boyack, of the Scottish Labour party, said reducing incidents of wild prey being killed was a matter of urgency.

Birds such as sea eagles, buzzards, red kites and hen harriers are targeted to "unacceptably high" levels, according to an RSPB report last month.

Ms Boyack, the Shadow secretary for Rural Affairs and Environment, said yesterday: "We need to have a thorough investigation where there have been a high number of incidents.

"If foul play is involved then those estates involved should be named and shamed so we can publicly condemn their actions."
