The figures are revealed in a report by the RSPB which says that buzzards and red kites were among those illegally killed.
It says tougher legislation is needed to punish those who deliberately target birds of prey.

Children's pocket money has risen more than twice as fast as their parents' wages since 1987.
Research by Halifax has found that pocket money has risen four fold with the average child in Britain receiving £6.35 per week. Meanwhile their parents' wages have only risen by 188% in the same 27 year period.
Two thirds of children do chores to earn their pocket money, and nearly 9 out of 10 of the youngsters surveyed understood that adults get money from working.
But whilst children in London get the most pocket money, with an average of £8.26 per week, East Anglian pocket money is only £5.15, the lowest in Britain.
