Summit aims to cut migrating bird deaths

Government representatives and conservationists from China to South Africa will be among the delegates. Many of the bird losses are linked to habitat destruction, collisions with structures such as wind turbines and illegal shooting and poisoning.

AN INTERNATIONAL summit meeting in Scotland will aim to end the annual slaughter of endangered birds of prey as they migrate across three continents.

It is hoped the gathering, at Loch Lomond from 22-25 October, will make progress in agreeing concerted action to tackle the problem.
