Police cautions for Devon peregrine disturbers

Back in March we blogged about the activities of Police Wildlife Crime Officer Josh Marshall, who had been installing covert cameras at active raptor nest sites in Devon in a pro-active effort to deter/catch would-be wildlife crime offenders. Within 48 hours, two suspicious characters were caught on camera visiting an active peregrine site (see here).

Today, PC Marshall has announced that the two men have both received police cautions and were issued with ‘strong words of advice’ (see here).

Well done Josh, keep up the good work!

    And to think such evidence would be inadmissable in Scotland!

    Well saying this evidence was colected by a POLICE OFFICER who was undoubtedly permitted to monitor the nests rather than a bias “charity worker” who was actively targetting a specific estate due to a chquered history! If such a case was replicated in Scotland there is no doubt similar cautions would have been recieved. There is far too much conspiracy theorists comment on this blog!
