SIX geese eggs, which were saved from being accidentally destroyed by a council grass cutting team, have disappeared from the riverbank in March.
AN early morning plea to a grass cutting team by March Society chairman Jennifer Lawler initially saved the eggs from being swept away from beside the Nene.
Now, however, they have disappeared without a trace from their spot inside a nest at Elwyn Road riverbank near the Kashmir Balti House Indian restaurant.
Mrs Lawler said the geese were spotted trampling over the nest and looking around in the bushes.
“They seemed incredibly sad. The eggs had been sat on for about three weeks so they can’t have been far off hatching, it is such a shame,” she said.

The eggs have disappeared without a trace which suggests they have been stolen, she said.
The matter has been reported to police, Fenland District Council, Middle Level and the RSPCA.

The RSPCA told her that it was unlawful to disturb and destroy a goose’s nest.
Ms Lawler said it was ironic that a letter from the council last month told residents the geese were in good health and that there were no concerns with their welfare.
