Concerns over the number of racing pigeons being killed by hawks

Along with flat caps and whippets they may be associated more with the north of England...but there are nearly 2,000 pigeon fanciers in our region.

Many of them are concerned and angry at how many of their birds are being killed by hawks.

Racing pigeons can be worth hundreds - even thousands - of pounds. But the RSPB says killing hawks is not the answer.
