Why Oh Why ?+ video
« on: July 10, 2011, 03:09:16 PM »
Why oh why ?
Can’t people be more careful with their fishing lines and polythene bags and kite strings etc.?
Walking home along the estuary I noticed a large gull like bird with very odd markings. Took a snap as he was quite far out and thought no more of it until further along I noticed he had drifted right up close to the banks.
It was a Gannet I thought wow. I took some photos. Then as I was zooming in on his face I thought “Oh No"
Yes the poor bird was tied up with fishing line and string with a polythene bag on toe. I couldn't just leave it.
 I phoned for the RSPCA to come out. Then someone I say hello to nearly every came along and I showed him the bird. He said if I hold on to the dogs he would go down and untangle the bird. There was line, string and a Polythene bag on toe. All were wrapped round his beak and wings
The blood you see on the bird’s beak are from where the bird pecked him whilst he was untangling all the lines.

About two hours later after resting the bird began to pick up as the RSPCA inspector was talking to me on the phone and I then told him the bird had rested and was picking up very well. So he didn't really need to come all the way to Exmouth.
The bird did really well after resting and made an excellent recovery.
I just wish people would be more responsible with their rubbish

 I stayed with the bird for nearly two hours  so I could keep dogs away . It was worth it .
I fell asleep when I got home woke up at .30 pm . I too was exhausted
