A gamekeeper is due in court on Monday 8th November accused of poisoning a buzzard.
He has already pleaded guilty to a number of firearms offences and a number of pesticide storage offences.
At an earlier hearing in August, the gamekeeper pleaded not guilty to poisoning the buzzard so the case was sent for trial.
This case stems from a multi-agency raid, led by Suffolk Police, at a property last January (see here).
