We are still working with a skeleton staff on site due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please bear with us if we do not get back to you immediately. Our staff aim to pick up enquiries Monday to Friday if possible.
Birds of prey: we rely on members of the public to send in deceased birds of prey. We would be grateful if you could keep the bird cold (preferably frozen) until you have received the submission pack. The pack contains everything you need to send the dead bird to us and is postage paid.
If you believe that the bird has been killed illegally, please contact the police and ask for the matter to be referred to a Wildlife Crime Officer.
Failed eggs: we can only accept addled and deserted eggs from licensed egg collectors. It is against the law to interfere with any bird nest or remove an egg without a licence. Please see Eggs for more information.
