The theft of eggs from the nest of a kestrel and grey wagtail in Norfolk is being investigated by police.
The theft is believed to have occurred sometime between May 4 and June 4 in Sculthorpe.
Officers believe this incident is linked with the theft of Marsh Harrier eggs last month in Guist.
Kestrels and Grey Wagtails are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and officers would like to hear from anyone who believes they may have seen any suspicious behaviour in the area.
Officers continue to urge members of the public to report any unusual activity around the theft of wild bird eggs in the county during Summer and nesting season.
