59.Egg thieves took thousands of eggs from nests. Sweden/Scandinavia, March 2013

Many of the eggs were stolen from nests of rare and protected species like Golden Eagles and White-tailed Eagles. The thieves "provided" evidence by diary entries, photographs, notes from observations and stored GPS-data.
The case could be solved by a cooperation of the British and the Swedish police.

62.Operation Easter will protect eggs and chicks of birds of prey from illegal traders. UK, March 2013

“Environment Minister Paul Wheelhouse, who chairs the Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime in Scotland, said egg thieves threaten some of the rarest and most famous species such as the osprey, white-tailed eagle and peregrine falcon, while other less well-known animals such as the Slavonian grebe and black-throated diver are also at risk. (…)

Police are urging members of the public to share any information they have about the theft of wild bird's eggs, or about anyone who disturbs rare nesting birds without a licence.
Information can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111."
