Norfolk businessman puts up £5K reward to catch raptor persecutors

Mervyn Lambert NorfolkLast month somebody stole a clutch of eggs from a Marsh harrier nest in Norfolk (see here). Around the same time, eggs were also stolen from a Kestrel’s nest and a wagtail’s nest. Norfolk Constabulary are linking the three thefts.

In response, local businessman Mervyn Lambert is offering a £5,000 reward for information, adding to the other £2,000 already available (£1K from the Eastern Daily Press and £1K from the Hawk & Owl Trust).

However, Mr Lambert isn’t limiting his offer to these three crimes. “I’ll give £5,000 for any information, not only about stealing birds’ eggs but poisoning, trapping and shooting protected birds“.

Good stuff.

    Well done this gentleman. What has happened to the £28.000? reward that I and many others contributed to with regard to the Black Isle Red Kite massacre? As it appears Police Scotland aren’t willing or able to find the culprit or culprits, has this money been donated to the RSPB yet?

    Excellent, more like him needed to put another nail in the wildlife persecutors coffin lid.

    Awesome work Mr Lambert. Perhaps if all of us on here were to chuck a few quid a month into a “Grass up the persecutors” pot, then we might be onto something.
