A new trial date has been set in the case against (now former) Stody Estate gamekeeper, Allen Lambert.
At a previous court hearing in December 2013, Lambert, 64, pleaded guilty to storing Mevinphos and Aldicarb pesticides at the Stody Estate in north Norfolk on or about 4th April 2013, as well as storing them without reasonable precautions.
He also admitted a charge of failing to comply with a firearms certificate by poor storage of a .22 Mauser.
He denied further charges including intentionally killing 14 buzzards, a sparrowhawk and a tawny owl between April 1-4 2013, as well as a charge of keeping nine dead buzzards on 4th April 2013.
His trial was previously due to begin in May 2014 but it was adjourned. The new trial date is 1st October 2014.
