I get emails from the regional police alerts network and also from neighbourhood watch. (Where I am is quite quiet so it is mostly missing persons and request for witness on car crashes, plus warnings about con men, burglars and illegal scrap people in the area.)
Today's one was about Operation Owl Raptor Persecution Awareness | Operation Owl. Regional police forces mobilising to reduce persecution of raptors. Very interesting website on how to identify legal and illegal traps and the use of poison and what to do about them. Ditto shooting. Also advice on responsible behaviour regarding taking photographs of birds and nests and using drones to do so.
