Gamekeeper baited birds of prey trap

Gamekeeper Glenn Brown illegally used a cage trap baited with a live pigeon to catch birds of prey, magistrates found.

Brown, 39, had denied operating the trap on land owned by the National Trust in the Upper Derwent Valley between 14 April and 25 May 2010.

But Chesterfield Magistrates' Court was told he was filmed by an RSPB team.

He has been ordered to pay £10,000 in costs and carry out 100 hours of community service.
