Anglesey dead birds 'could have been fleeing bird of prey'

You may recall a news item that we posted in December last year regarding a BBC news story: 'Hundreds of dead starlings found in mystery mass death' that involved our colleagues at Animal and Plant Health Agency and the Wildlife Incident Investigation Scheme.

The BBC have followed up on this story; North Wales Police's Rural Crime unit said investigations supported the theory they had hit the ground trying to avoid a predator and initial post-mortem examinations by the Animal Plant and Health Agency suggested the starlings had died on impact with the road. See https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-51134047 for the full story.
