BBC: Tree fall man had been egg thief

A 63-year-old man who fell to his death after climbing a 40ft tree to examine a bird's nest was a convicted egg thief, it has emerged.

Colin Watson from Selby had at one time been one of the most notorious thieves of rare bird eggs in the country, the RSPB said.

I think my heart might be bleeding.

  1. Did Colin Watson fall or was he pushed? There must be thousands who would like to think this was no accident!
