AN EGG-straordinary donation of potentially illegal birds’ eggs have been handed over to a zoo.
The collection of more than 100 specimens was delivered to Drusillas Park in Alfriston.
The rare bird eggs were delivered to the zoo last week by a couple who stumbled across them while clearing out the belongings of a deceased relative. The collection includes eggs which are more than a century old but it has been illegal to take the eggs of most wild birds since the Protection of Birds Act 1954 and anyone caught with an unlicensed collection can face serious charges.
