Eggs and Fossils

Post  littlewid on Tue Nov 06, 2012 8:51 am

I agree with David and Chris's sentiments but I also wonder if the laws are correct as there is such disregard for wildlife these days

I basicly agree with David, and Chris, but things have changed since they were doing there collecting, and being out in the woods. There is more of a percieved danger in young people being out on their own in the countryside these days. The other thing thats crossed my mind is that, many of our birds that are in crises numericly were not in danger years ago. So that the taking of an egg, whilst having an effect on an invidual birs would not advesrly effect the overall number. Now days it would on species like Starlings, Sparrows, and Song Birds. David knew when to take an egg, so that the bird had time to lay another, but youngsters today do'nt have that knowledge, and it could have a devastating effect whilst they learnt. I think that stopping people from collecting fossils, or dead animal parts, providing the person has no part in that death is OTT, and perhaps neads lookin at, as to how it's interpreted.

No problem Doogs. Very Happy

I agree with what you say WS and although this one is a little more obsession than collecting the odd egg, this is what it could lead to......From todays Mail
