- Dead Starlings…
So this is quite sad, and very odd;
What could cause that?Posted 2 months ago13thfloormonkMember
Some mouth-breather scattering poisoned feed then chucking any carcasses off their land onto the road?
Can’t imagine why anyone would want to kill Starlings though, and as cover ups go it wouldn’t be a very good one, but when wildlife crime is concerned never under estimate people’s ability to stoop to new lows…Posted 2 months agoswedishmetalMember
It’s weird as it was only an hour between them being in the sky and dead on the floor. If it was poison you wouldn’t expect so many in one go and all fall on the same bit of road. If you had killed them by poison they would most likely die in fields and why would you bother picking them all up and putting them on the toad?
Very odd.Posted 2 months ago
Birds were seen eating something on the road shortly before the dead starlings were discovered.
Police say: “We believe we may have the reason now…but we are awaiting the toxicology and post mortem results before releasing it.”Posted 2 months agoprojectMember
Traffic copper i knew had been on a Chemical Biological Nuclear awareness course, and was told , if you see lots of dead birds or people lying on the ground, get out of there fast, as it could be a dangerous situation, asked why it was traffic police, he said because we have fast cars to get away fast and report back from a safe distance.Posted 2 months ago
It seems they died from “impact with the ground”Posted 2 months agomaccruiskeenSubscriber

I’m sure the investigating copper being on R4 today said that it happened years ago in the same spot. Strange
If its happened before in the same spot then some sort of light/reflection/dazzling thing maybe makes sense – the way the murmerartions work is the birds are all following each other – I guess its only the ones at the front that need to be confused and all the rest will follow themPosted 2 months ago
