I bet the PR people at the Scottish Gamekeepers Association are loving that ski-mask look . He couldn't have chosen a better way of making gamekeepers look like a bunch of criminals.

'Bout time they made farms corporately liable for the actions of their gamekeepers and ban them from all forms of husbandry for a few years

just came back from working in somerset
a labourer on the job had worked as a gamekeeper in this county and other areas(mainly scotland) he told me it was common practice to shoot buzzards.. and even goshawks!!! at this time of the year!!! i know buzzards are common down here but there is no need for this...the birds are only feeding...people disturb the balance of nature by breeding game birds for personel gain!
