We see some shocking images in our team, but this week a photo came in that will stick with all of us for a long time.
This is a picture of the heart of a red kite, following a post-mortem examination. On the left, there’s a silver item lodged in the muscle: it’s a piece of shot. But incredibly, this isn’t the piece of shot that killed the bird.
