Derbyshire police and the RSPB are appealing for information following the discovery of a dead female goshawk with two broken legs.

The bird of prey was discovered at Chatsworth estate by a member of the public who alerted the RSPB on April 2.

The charity’s investigations team recovered the bird and sent it for a post-mortem examination by an expert avian pathologist working for the Animal Health Veterinary Laboratory Agency (AHVLA) in Scotland.
