A wildlife charity says the seizure of around 5,000 wild bird eggs from a Norfolk home is the largest of its kind in 10 years.
The collection was discovered by police as they executed a search warrant at a property in Newton St Faith on Monday, May 21.
On the same day, a man in his 60s was arrested after being found with a “clutch” of wild bird eggs at Cawston Heath, near Reepham.
He has since been released under investigation.
