Obsessive egg thieves threaten the rarest birds by robbing their nests each Spring while a UK national police operation tries to stop them. Money is not a factor for these bandits. They are motivated by both their passion for the beauty of the egg, as well as the thrill of the chase. The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds teams with the National Wildlife Crime Unit for Operation Easter, to hunt and jail these robbers.
