A gamekeeper appeared in court on 12th August 2021 accused of the alleged killing of a number of buzzards in Nottinghamshire in January 2021.
He was charged after a joint investigation by Nottinghamshire Police and the RSPB’s Investigations Team (see here).
The gamekeeper pleaded not guilty so this case will now progress to trial.
Trial dates have been set for 6th-7th January 2022.
