Dear Raptor Owner/Falconer,

As I am sure you are aware, many of us have had our beloved birds killed by lead shot found in either already dead animals or in animals and birds carrying lead but still healthy until caught by our hawks. The more evidence that we can put together on raptors being killed by lead the better the chance we have of lead being banned, which quite frankly should have happened years ago.

We would be grateful if you could fill in the questionnaire below to help us find out just how many of our birds have died because of lead.

Because we donít want to bug you for information twice, I would be very grateful if you could let me know if you have had birds electrocuted as this information may well be very useful at a later date.

Both questionnaires are to benefit our birds in the long run, so worth doing.
