HER MAJESTY’S officials were warned of ‘serious shooting incidents’ involving protected wildlife on her estate SIX times since 2006, the Guardian has revealed.
According to the extensive report, on an ordinary evening in 2007, a wildlife warden at the Dersingham Bog nature reserve took a friend to observe two Hen Harriers, a bird species protected by the crown.
To their shock and surprise the peaceful trip was interrupted by two loud gunshots, and the pair saw one of the rare birds of prey “immediately fold and drop out of sight.”
Killing one of these birds can lead to six months in prison or a £5,000 fine, so the on lookers quickly contacted the police, only to be told there was nothing they could do, as they needed permission to enter Her Majesty’s Sandringham estate.
