Which birds do we want?

The Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme welcomes submission of all species of bird of prey.

Current funding allows for analysis of Barn owl, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel and Red kite samples. Other species are analysed when time and funding permits; these include Buzzard and Tawny owl. Other birds of prey that we receive that are suitable for analysis are retained in a long term archive facility at CEH Lancaster.
