A man from Derbyshire who illegally caught and sold wild birds has been told he could go to prison.
Russell Yates kept dozens of birds in small cages at his house in Tibshelf.
The RSPCA found evidence of him making more than £1000 by trading the birds.
Dogs and pigeons were also found being kept in filthy conditions.
Yates pleaded guilty to the charges at Chesterfield Magistrates court and will be sentenced next month.
Carroll Lamport is an RSPCA Inspector.
