That article is hilarious. Is all of England really like that?
The Daily Mail is a tabloid newspaper that caters to the sensationalist side of UK popular taste.

If the guy in the article had simply said "yeah found some rounds.... put them in a bag and took them to the local cop-shop... nuisance, really: took me two hours and now I haven't the time to put up those shelves..." it would never have seen print.

So in answer to your question, no... it isn't.

don't see any fear about going to jail, just sheer terror about finding ammo in their pond:
Thing is, I expect there might just as easily be some in any country who react that way they did, US included...
It all depends on people's experiences: I don't think that reaction should be scorned unless we know they should know better...

isn't getting the ammo hard in Europe.
Yes, and no. Depends where you live. I have to present a licence to buy ammo, but I can order bullets and cases online from abroad and I'm sure some places will sell you powder and primers without checking any papers.

So... if you have a press and time then it is quite easy to get ammo...

I don't think this would be the case in more stringent countries like UK; Germany, France etc...
