There are quite a few native species and others that just migrate here to hunt but breed much further north. I can't identify the birds in the pictures, they have juvenile plumage.

Ospreys would be my guess.

My first reaction is to write Bastards!! but there is not much point in that. The reality is that wildlife trade is happening all over, all around.

I am not generally a big fan of vigilantism, but the only protection our vanishing wildlife has is the Rule of Law.
Most wildlife trade is illegal - PPlease go to the effort of finding the right agency and report it.

I am sure you will find the right directions, or advice, here at CEO if necessary.
Thanks.

Little Tern, you need to update your handle; it is now "Sternula".

Busted. Good spotting.

It was the species that gave me my kick start as a naturalist, so one of my faves. They hadn't split the genus at that stage so I stick with the original, being an old fashion kinda guy.

I could argue the point, below is from the current updated official scientific "description".
Bonn as Sterna albifrons, CAMBA as Sternula albifrons, JAMBA as Sterna albifrons, ROKAMBA as Sterna albifrons

But I won't argue. You are right, this group of small terns are now correctly called: genus, sturnula.

Best... Stern A Abifrons, - still.

Ok, at a roadblock, there are multiple officers. So how the fuck is it possible the driver can just get away by running?

Has he been caught yet? Is his identity being withheld because he's some fucking Chinese rich prick who is above the law?

Are penalties multiplied because of evasion? Running away didn't seem to hurt the girl driving the Range Rover.
