Egg collectors remain a serious threat to protected species as a Little Tern colony near Hartlepool is robbed.

This horrible incident helps to endorse the WOS policy of secrecy with

some of the County's rare breeders. The incident demonstrates that

the threat of egg collectors is not a thing of the past and that we cannot be over careful with our approach.

As the link shows, the incident may well cause the extinction of Little Terns at the colony concerned.
